Pillar of Society is the first route you come to, as it is right at the top of the trail from the campground to the Lower Buttress. Look for the giant 3' diameter cobble.
first route at the top of the trail, 10' left of the Surrealistic Pillar direct.
sport bolted. There is usually a stick near the base to stick clip the first bolt.

This route has brilliant moves and follows an unbelievable line of dikes. Don't let the small crimp crux down low discourage you from doing the deluxe upper half of this route

You can easily set a TR by climbing over from the anchors of Surrealistic Pillar Direct. Perhaps 15-20 feet of 5.4 dikes.

How in the heck do you start this thing?! I spent five minutes just trying to get off the ground! The handholds are there, but the feet start a few feet off the ground...

The area's best face climb. I stick clipped the first bolt due to the blank start -- probably hard V4 getting to the mega-knob.

Any one have any beta for the section right after the big side pull jug after the 4th bolt?

The initial boulder problem is deffinetely in the V4 range maybe a tad harder or easier. If you can reach that first dikey rail off the start it eliminates that boulder problem. However all the way to the 4th bolt it felt like sustained hardness on tiny tiny stuff (12a). Cant really see how its still 12a adding on that boulder problem at the beginning to be honest. But I didn't send it so I have no room to complain
