Description 

"Greed...is good"

Stick clip the first bolt shared with Looters then campus the crazy roof start. Boulder through the technical crux around the third bolt.

Crawl into a hole about midpoint and recover, then pump out the roof...the top is technical and somewhat cryptic, but not hard if you nail the sequences.

Clip the anchors, give a "Braaawwk" yell and lower.


Location 

This is the second route left on the left side of the Crime Buttress.

Shares the first bolt with Looters (12b).


Protection 

9-10 draws, fixed anchors.

CONDITION REPORT 

The anchor could use new chains. The current ones are pretty rusted as is one of the bolts. The carabiners are deeply gouged too.

Starting holds are on a roof with black rock. Start by stepping onto the cairn. Hook your right heel and make the powerful moves up to the next two holds. Trend slightly left for a few moves after the initial start moves and then head straight up to the cave, where you can get a good rest. Pull the roof onto the face for some excellent balancy/crimpy moves. Great route and great rests. Don't forget to enjoy the view once you reach the top.
