Description [Suggest Change]

This route is located about 100' left of Houser Buttress. It is on the north side of a square boulder which its shares with Badger's Chuff Piece (5.10d/5.11a), which is the three-bolt route most immediately visible from the trail on the right arete. AT is up and behind this.

The climb contains entertaining face climbing between enormous rests. It has powerful thing edging right off the deck. Combined with a mantel/reach move, it's a short, but good all around face route.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Three bolts. Hand size cams/boulder tie offs anchor. Descend via chimney in center.

Clip the first bolt from the ground. The topout looks intimidating from the ground, but huge edges mitigate any danger.

I really do not think that this route is worth the approach, the belay stance, or the stars. Also the last moves, while not dangerous, are not so easy... Apr 5, 2008
Great route sustained and hard Jan 26, 2011
