DescriptionApproach as for Challenge Buttress. Continue up the talus past Winky and Waxman to the Strone Crag on climber's right of the gully. Start here. Gain the ridge and ride it for 8 to 10 pitches. Expect sections of (very) loose rock (wear a helmet!), and sections of excellent bulletproof quartzite. Pass gendarmes on the right (west) for more solid rock.
Stop at the gully above Glass Ocean. Descend this gully (to the east). The top of the gully is loose and kinda scary, but it gets better. I'm guessing that the total descent time is about 30 minutes to an hour.
In order to preserve the adventure of this route, I don't want to reveal too much detail. Have fun.
