|Battle of the Bulge Buttress
Route climbs a corner with a rather wide start then is mostly handcrack to the top.
Route starts on the left end of the buttress. Head down towards Think Pink. Elbow Vices starts on the wall to the left of Pigs In Space.
Large piece for the beginning and then mostly hand-size stuff.

Man I really suck at wide stuff! That squeeze shouldn't be much of an issue but I just kept getting stuck with cams and all. Cool climb though if you don't mind the start. I had my back against the other wall the whole way... maybe that was part of my problem.

Great climb to put a hot shit sport climber on. A friend of mine who climbs 12+ sport got shutdown in the squeeze. He's not fat either. The trick is the get your ass outside of the squeeze to move up then rest again each time you go up a few inches. A very narrow slot indeed.

Umph! The squeeze is definitely the crux. The scabs on my leg from this beast are still festering 6 days later...
