DescriptionI haven't been able to find any info on this obvious and clearly well-established route. If anyone knows....
This is an obvious slab route up the westernmost (leftmost) buttress on the Upper Infirmary Slabs. The route is pretty moderate but sustained at the 5.6ish level. Bolts are spaced about six feet apart with the first no more than six feet off the deck making this an ideal first slab lead. Staying to the left edge yields a nice pure-slab climb while staying right allows you to use an obvious, shallow crack system. The layout and sheer number of bolts suggests that there may even be two lines here. Seems strange given that the buttress is less than ten feet wide!
ProtectionEight or nine closely-spaced bolts to a two-bolt and chain anchor.
Per outdooreric: plus a 0.75-1.5 inch cam.
