BETA PHOTO: Hot WIng Buttress
A decent sport route with some strenuous movement underneath and moving past the roof. Being caught up on your yoga or pilates will help.
Kind of a feisty route with less optimal cliff structure, which prevents it from being a higher quality route.
Approx. 75 yards right of Wolf Wall there is a buttress-like portion of cliff. The upper section of this is actually a free standing section of stone, separate from the actual cliff behind it. As you face this feature, you see that it is composed of a lower section of rock that is vertical, followed by a roof, above which is another vertical section.
To the left of center, underneath the roof feature, is a bolted route that begins on a vertical section of cliff that is broken by a large ledge. Above the ledge the route ascends under the roof and once meeting the roof proper, then moves laterally left to a large slot. From there very reachy moves gain holds just above the roof and continue up the final vertical section of cliff to fixed anchors.
