A wonderful technical climb with a bit of pump protecting the anchors.
Start below a left rising crack ramp system. Move up the face through the flake to get to the first bolt. Climb the exciting crack and ramp using fun body position and finger locks. Make some tough moves to get established below the roof. Move out the roof on some big holds and finish the route on a few slopy rails.
This is the first line on the next buttress after the main. Walk past the first buttress through some rocks and back up the hill to the next cliff. Look for the obvious crack ramp system.
QD's for 5 bolts, maybe a few longer draws. 2 bolt anchor at the top. Rappel with a 60m or smaller.
