|Test Pilots Buttress
An interesting climb with a highly technical start - what I like to call "old school", followed by an excellent headwall finish on amazing holds. Look for a tricky kneebar at bolt 2.
Climb the ramp feature up and right past 2 bolts (and the crux - 11d/12a) to jugs; protect the second well here for the crux below. Make an easy traverse right to a stance below the short but awesome headwall (11) and 2 final bolts. Climb past them to a ledge and an anchor.
Starts just right of "Backdoor Man".

Thanks to the guys who did some work leveling out the ground at the start!
