|Hemingway Buttress (East Face Left)
This excellent B. G. route begins on a face just below a left arching seam to the right of "More Funky Than Junky" (5.10a). Difficult moves past a bolt gain the seam. Continue up the seam and face with very technical moves past three more bolts, a fixed pin, and supplemental gear.
4 bolts, one fixed piton, TCU's from #0 - #3, and small stoppers or brass provide excellent protection. Sport anchor on top to rappel from.
Some pulling still required near the top.

Though the first 10 feet are a little loose, the rest of the climb sports good patina. Very continuous climbing for first 30 feet of so. Well worth doing. 3 of 5 stars.

Beginning is loose and the fact you need to move so far right detracts, tricky crux.

Not sure how moving 2ft right on one move detracts from the route.
