This is the best crack climb on the Second Buttress.

P1. Start in a crack below a 90 degree roof (very similar to Coffin Crack). Pull the roof via hands, and then continue up another 10 feet of hands. Mantel a small ledge, and then climb a weakness to a second roof. Move up and right (crux) of the roof, and belay at a rusty chain anchor.

P2. Either climb a finger crack (direct route) or move to the right and climb a hands/fists, cornery/chimney feature thing.


This is just to the right of Journey through Gwondonaland.


Standard rack, cams to 2 inches.
