With the exception of a single, short trad crack the Belligerent Buttress is the easiest route on The Fang. It begins off a flake/block system on the right (West) end of the crag, facing North.

Difficulties begin immediately. A clip underneath an overhang launches the first hard move (5.12a) that simply gets you started on the route. Pull left, around, and over the lip of the overhang to catch some very thin face climbing above. Cruxes at 35 feet and 65 feet, both 5.12a/b, complete the climbing. Everything you need is close at hand, including a thin seam system near the top. Hang on, stay on your feet, and enjoy one of the best routes on The Fang.

Three stars for the great stone, the climbing moves, the continuity, and the fine bolting job.


QDs only. This 80 foot route needs 9-10 draws and something for the double bolt anchor at the top.
