Description Suggest change

This is another "classic" .11- on the north side of the Bastille.

Start near the base of Rain on the (surprising) northwest corner of the Bastille. Climb up and left via underclings, past a few fixed pins and one tricky move to the top of the pillar and a two bolt anchor (.9).

The next pitch climbs up the left-facing corner, through a small roof (.9+) and up the thin crack (crux). Reach up to clip a bolt and traverse right to a belay at a bolt on the arete.

Pitch three follows the obvious corner above for 40 feet. Move up and right through loose strata to overhung moves along a chalked flake (more pins). Belay on same ledge as for Outer Space.

Pitch four options include outer space and traversing right and up the last pitch of West Buttress.

Overall, this is an enjoyable route. The crux pitch may feel a little hard for the grade.
