Gate Buttress Area Recreational Lease: Climbs on Church Buttress above vault remain closed Details

Description

This starts in the same right facing crack that Lisa Falls Right climbs, but it continues into the nice finger crack after Lisa Falls Right climbs the face above. Continue until the end of the finger crack, and then pop over the roof on your left. Climb the thin seams that don't protect well for a bit, and then start an angling ramble to the left and the base of the flake on Lisa Falls Right. Finish up with that climb. 2 1-rope rappels.

Protection

2 bolts at the top are the anchor. Small to medium gear for the lower part of the climb, the upper flake protected well with medium SLCD's. Bring some runners--at least 3.

Here's a link to a GoPro perspective following Neurotica. Fun little climb! The video includes Neurotica in the first half and Hard Knocks starting at 3:47.

This is a much better route than Lisa Falls Right. The climbing is more continuous, logical, and sustained. There is a runout, but the fall would probably not injure you if you blew it. Best 5.5 in LCC. Jun 16, 2005
