Description

This route begins off the lower left side of the ledge found on George's Route [route 476], after that route's 6th bolt. Probably it is best to climb all of George's Route and then make a short (35 foot) rap back down to the ledge.

Head up and left onto the ridge of the very narrow buttress of rock and follow it past 6 bolts (1 of which is entirely unnecessary) and 1 fixed pin. You end at a large ledge in a saddle below and right of the summit of Buttress 2. This route is clearly seen as the narrow rib of dark rock to the right of the upper part face with the "pointer."

As stated elsewhere, You can easily scramble down and right through the "saddle" to reach the Kamchatka Block and the north facing crack route Broken Breams (11b).

Rap off slings down and right (60 feet) to the rap anchor atop George's Route. Rap (100 feet!) to the ground from here.

Protection

6 bolts and 1 fixed pin. Sling anchor/rap.
