Description Suggest change

I never have figured out quite how to pronounce the name of this climb. I also have no idea what the hell a buissonier is. A buisson is a bush. The nearest I can figure is buissonniere, French for "to play truant or skip school". In any case, a pretty good climb.

Begin behind campsite (#21). First moves off the deck are awkward - protect with small nut or TCU to avoid castration from sharp fin of rock below in the event of a fall. Either jam or lieback the left-angling crack. Gear belay.

Descent: scramble down chimney to the southwest (a little tricky).

Protection Suggest change

Standard rack. A small nut or TCU will help protect initial moves off the deck.
