Arjun prepping to gun through the crux on the FA.


Solid rock after easier climbing down low on flakier rock. Prolonged crux on steep overhanging rock with thin holds. A very fun climb and I'll have to wash the chalk off the good holds to give you the real experience! Ascends through the middle of a dark colored vertical swath that marked better quality rock for the area. The lower 6 bolts to the overhang placed ground up, the upper 2 put in from above. Runout to the anchors up top as the climbing is very easy. If you expect burnt forearms, bring a couple medium cams for the upper section.


Towards the right side of the west face of Shadow Buttresses. Just left of the right-leaning arete that will be another climb.


8 bolts.
