Not sure if did FA by accident today. Started at base of First Buttress, not in the gully to the West, thinking we were on the Dihedral. We went up a slope to a 10 foot crack to the left of a large, protruding block. It was then blocky until you hit a large slope and set up an anchor. We did a 2nd pitch up a grungy slope to a 6 foot and topped out. About 210' total. See the pic for the start of route up to the crack and block. Sep 18, 2016
