Dad... I'm climbing with Cote, today.

I'll figure out a way to scare the info out of him and find out about this secret spot....

5 meters of slack when he wants to "lower" should do it.

check back in later.

The beta is right in front off your nose:

But don't be fooled by the 4-star rating. These obscurities generally don't compare to the popular Tahquitz/Suicide routes but are worthwhile for those who enjoy character building approaches to solitude and alpine settings.

Though I will agree with this in a general sense, the Indian Buttress has cleaned up a lot in the last few years and the second pitch is certainly worth the stars. It likely seen more ascents and also has one of the shorter approaches of anything in the circuit.

but also, IT SUCKS, NO ONE GO UP THERE!! ;) there really are some gems that rival the most classic pitches I've climbed at tahquitz, but yeah, you will do a lot of trundling and bushwhacking to find the most splitter pitches.
Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
