The opening moves are the technical crux. Small crimps to reach an overhang. The overhang section is more of a sequential crux. If you pick the right holds quickly enough, you get a nice rest immediately after the moves. From here, follow a flake system to the left and then straight up to the finish. The last part is significantly easier than the rest, unless you opt for the harder variation (Harmonic Jello, 12c) that heads right. This might be a good project for someone breaking into the 5.12 grade.


This is the first obvious route you will encounter as you approach the main face of the Bubba Buttress walking upstream. Just to of the crack at the start of Face it Bubba.


6 bolts, shuts.
