Airation Buttress atop of the Thin Air Face
In my not so humble opinion, one of the best routes on the Airation Buttress. Superb climbing on perfect rock and a TOTAL CLASSIC when linked with Heather or Airation.
From the high point of the Buttress rap down about 100' to a 2 bolt stance OR from the top of Airation/Heather move Left for about 30'
Bolts and pins. Anchor in the best hand crack on Cathedral at the top.
Toproping on a slightly rainy day.

John, I just added a copy of that photo to this page. It looks like a cool line.

I got on this climb today and it was indeed fantastic. I attempted to lead it and wussed out above the piton. TRed it a few times and cleaned a bunch of lichen and moss off and now it seems much more reasonable. Definitely worth doing, especially if you link it with airation, makes for a great two pitch climb up that section of the wall.
