It's the most left route on Bucksnort slab. Just right of the walk off. The start is on a bench bellow a water streak. There are four bolts on the first pitch; two can be seen easily from the base, the third is on a bulge mostly out of sight. Belay in a crack (nuts & med. Aliens).

P2 - Go up and right on sweet slab passing a bolt to a four foot step. Small gear (nuts & aliens) can protect this pull over. Then two more bolts on the face lead to the top of the rock w/ a good crack to belay in (1,2,3 Camalots). This can be done as one long pitch with a 60M. Rope. All the hard climbing is protected w/ small run outs in between. Walk off to the left.

The first little pitch of this route is very enjoyable. As for the second little part, the gear that is mentioned is suspect, unless you go quite a bit left of the bolt and place a large cam under a big flake, which puts you way left of the suggested route. From here I pulled through the 'step' on a loose block (only feature on the step, easily spotted to the left). The bolts mentioned on the slab above, seem to be down to 1 and are plenty far above the step. If you fell from the step it would be a bad scene. Be careful if you are not very confident on 9+ climbing.

My suggestion. Do the first part of the route and walk off to the left... !pi
