Start of R2D2.

Description 

Climb the right side of the buttress, passing a tree about 15 feet on the way up. Go up a short left facing corner, to a tree. Route is a bit chaussy throughout. Near the top, either climb to the left of the block or shuttle around to the right side for easier climbing.

Location 

Route (5.5) is located about 35 feet to the right of Scuttle and up the hill a tad. Build an anchor below the huge block to avoid rope drag. Round the corner of the block and walk off on the ledge to the North, passing the top out of Scuttle.

Protection 

Standard Seneca rack. Bring a few 48' runners, otherwise there can be a bit of rope drag.
