Difficult climbing up the arete to the right of the Butt Lips Chimney.


4 bolts and gear to 2" for an anchor.

After a little scrubbing each summer, this route is worth the try.

BETA Warning*****Stay to the right of the corner and look for small feet on the face.

Super strenuous and balancy. Bring stiff shoes! I would not use this as an intro climb into the 11's at index.

You can top rope the route by climbing one of the 5.8's to the left of it.
