Description 

The book calls this a 5.8 face climb. The face is harder than 5.8 and there is a nice finger crack in corner to the right. So, slab start, up crack in corner,a few face moves to anchors? Was wondering if I was on the right route.


Location 

Located at the "toe" of the buttress. Last route on left before steep pumice slope, by itself.


Protection 

I found 8 bolts(book says 6).

Fun climb. It just didn't match up with book description. Anyone know what's up with this one?
