Description 

If Boomstick Crack is crowded, or you're trying to pass a party, this is a good option to get from Broadway Ledge up to Squamish Buttress.

P1. Start just right on Boomstick. Place a ~1 in cam in the undercling, reach really high, and crank a fun move right off the ledge. Easier if you're tall. Face climb up and right past a bolt to the obvious tree and crack. Climb crack past a few anchor stations (this is a popular rappel route). Finish where the crack peters out near and belay at the last large tree. Almost 200 feet long.

P2. Face climb straight up, then a little left, past a bolt at 5.8. Easier climbing all the way up the forest and a huge ledge. Belay from a tree. About 180 feet.


Location 

Broadway Ledge, on the right side, where the trees peter out. Just right on Boomstick, the obvious huge flake that goes sharply left and up.


Protection 

A couple bolts, a few pieces of gear, but not much needed. Mostly trivial climbing.
