Description 

Cruise 4 pitches up the large buttress. It was not a problem to do this as two long pitches. The pitches go at 5.7 with 4 bolts, 5.1 with 2 bolts, 5.6 with 5 bolts, and 5.2 with 2 bolts. We rapped back down the way we came. Bring a 60m rope.

Location 

Look for the large, obvious buttress and follow the bolts.

This route is not 400 feet, maybe 200. I linked 1 &2 and 3&4 with a set of doubles, rapped off and had extra rope on both, so it's probably closer to 150 feet. Great route though, interesting climbing at the cruxes and cruiser conglomerate in between in a beautiful location!

Fantastic spot to try your first multi pitch. Scenic and safe route had a ball. A couple of anchors could use a snug and some glue, neither which I carried sorry.
