A very fun and challenging route. Climb up to the roof, use hand jams to pull over the roof. Continue to the top of the crack using fists, and offwidth technique or any face features that can be found. I'd recommend taping as the rock can be kind of sharp.

This route follows the prominent crack on the right end of this buttress.


Large hexes and cams from #1-#4 or #5 (camalot), preferably with doubles of #4.
