This route located high up the Green A Gully, Is a great excursion in the warmer months. With very overhanging second and thirds pitches, this is a exciting solo. The first grovel pitch basically sucks, yet the rest of the route is very rewarding. The topo to this route is in the guidebooks. Plan on the better part of the day to send.


Standard aid rack with a few long lost arrows.


I climbed it all clean with micro nuts, small cams, and a few hook moves, felt like C2+. Great route! Apr 26, 2007

The anchor in the ledge atop of Butterfield Route P1 (in book) consists of a KB and a knotted rope jammed in a shallow constriction. The tree below this was questionable when I pushed on it to test for a rappel. I'd recommend the next person bring a longer LA to leave near the KB for the anchor in the alcove. Also the shrub is getting thick in the cracks around this area so it must need more traffic. Jul 8, 2012

The anchor next to the chopper flake is two bolts. The bolt ladder on the route really does make for a great and excited solo. Sep 27, 2015
