|Fern Point - Party Buttress
Boulder up to a stance and clip the one lone bolt...yes my friends you have now entered the trad zone. Launch your way up, easing a touch to the left and a touch to the right climbing past edges, horizontals, slopers and a few pockets - placing gear where you see it. About mid way up the pump clock starts ticking...punch it and get over the slight bulge and aim for a ledge up near the arete. Enjoy the last exposed moves to the anchors...nice.
Located to the right of Party in My Mind - shares same start.
One bolt, small gear, rap rings at the top.

One of the best trad lines of its grade I have done. Run out a bit in some places but small gear appears right at the last minute just when you need it. Keep your eyes peeled for little matchbox size slots ideal for small tcu placements that are actually pretty darn solid for gear. The final arete is spicey but I just remember loving this route...
