Description 

This is probably the most popular route on the buttress. A GREAT test of skill. It amazes me that some have such an easy time with the moves... and other VERY GOOD CLIMBERS are stumped at the second bolt. ENJOY!

Location 

Immediately right of Flight 714.

Protection 

Four quickdraws and an attentive belayer.

The best of the SW Shoulder sport routes. Though only 4 bolts long, the route is slightly overhanging, very sustained, and has tricky moves
