DescriptionThis is to the left of the main selection of Sport routes on Escape Buttress. It was first climbed about one week after the death of Steve Carruthers, hence the name and he should never be forgotten in the climbing lore of the Wasatch.
The route starts next to a scrubby tree that may still be there and immediately goes up and right past 9 bolts to some huge jugs to clean, fun edges. It ends on a little ledge with a rap station with one chain vertically above a fixed ring hanger.
Probably still needs to get cleaned up a bit which would come with more traffic. I think most people enjoy this pitch.Previously unreported...anyone do this route and not know what it was?
Immediately to the left are two Tim Wolfe routes that are 5.11ish. NED is certainly no harder than 5.10a, so if you are climbing that hard, you must be too far left or completely off route.
