Description

This route climbs the dark patina-covered, buttress (Buttress 3) just right of the buttress/face containing Dos Chi Chis and Yasmine Bleeth (Buttress 2, which has pointer above it).

Climb up past 6 bolts to a ledge [the Cross-Roads Finish, route 477, begins off this ledge]. 2 more bolts protect face to another ledge/block and a 2 bolt anchor/rap (100 feet!).

The logical finish to this route is to make a short (35 foot) rap down to the ledge system below, then climb left onto a very narrow and overbolted buttress [Cross-Roads Finish; route 477]. From the top of Cross Roads Finish, you can rap from slings to the rap anchor atop George's Route and make a second rap [100'] to the ground.

Protection

8 bolts; 2 bolt anchor, 100 foot rap off. Optional gear to 2.5 inches.

a 60meter rope gets you all the way up and down. No anchors are at the ledge so if by some chance you wish to do it with a 50meter rope and in two pitches be prepared to rig a rap anchor from the ledge and leave it behind for we locals to get some more "booty"....... May 12, 2005

Good warm-up for Dos Chichis and Yasmin Bleeth. It's well protected and has rap anchors to take you to the bottom with one rope. It's definitely the easiest of the three. Oct 27, 2005

Decent climbing, but the first few moves are on somewhat questionable rock, and a fall before the first bolt is not a good idea. A #1 Camalot (or equivalent) can be place between bolts 6 and 7 if desired to ease the runout.

Easily done in one pitch up and down with a 60 meter rope; it's about 90' down to the top of the starting block. Two stars out of five. Feb 25, 2006

There is now a FP on the ledge, so there is something to clip before heading up to the last to bolts on the final headwall.....it's a wee bit hidden in an overlap, but still one should see it;....It's about a 1 1/2 in. big angle piton.... May 27, 2009
