|Buttress of Cracks - Right Side
This climb starts a bit to the right of East Buttress Gully, near the very lowest point of the rock. It's a thin face climb, with a bolt at the crux move. Walk off to the right from the ledge at the end of the route. This climb is in the sun until mid-afternoon.
two bolts plus a few nut placements, plus some gear (or long slings) for the anchor

This wall is often top-roped.
There's a 5.11- variation start beginning on the left - one bolt to the main route.

Love this climb as a top rope after leading The Plague. There is a fun variation I do that isn't described in the book starting between the 5.11 variation and the seam/crack that presumably starts this route. I think it fits better with the 5.10 rating of this route because the 5.7 start outlined in my guide book is pretty easy and there's only 1 or 2 solid 5.10 moves on this pitch anyway, in my opinion.
