  • Description 

    This route is fairly sustained at about 9- to solid 9 and definitely runout. I would suggest leading the full length of the rope until you get on easier ground near the top of the South Buttress.


    Location 

    This route starts about 100 feet lower then the Redguard roof. From the Ramp at the bottom of the second half of the South Buttress (at the top of Touch N Go) follow the OW/ dihedral of the 3rd/4th pitches of Redguard. This route follows the lichen, rarely traveled slab to the left of Semi-Wild. There is a juniper tree on a small ledge if you look up from the start of the slab. Follow the slab just right of this tree. The route looks hard to pick out from the start but is easy route finding once you get started.


    Protection 

    SR mostly smaller gear from BD size #2 and lower.
