Steep crimping leads to a rest right before a big move/dyno for the crux then on to somewhat sustained climbing upto and over a roof section. Gets kind of airy for a sport route which adds to the fun


This is the middle route on Tool Buttress

Great route with a stopper boulder problem in the middle. Incuts, slopers, jugs, and a cool dihedral at the top make this a must do.
