DescriptionA Crag's classic. This takes the LGF's slabby left-hand buttress on excellent, solid face holds, but beware quite runout. Start at the high point on the saddle between Castaway and the LGF.
P1.Up a left facing flake then a featured 5.7S face to the top of the flatiron, 60'.
P2.Follow the lone fingercrack and at its end, arch leftward past a horizontally-incut rail then finally reach the right-facing dihedral line on the buttresses left shoulder, 5.8S. Continue easily to a large ledge, 150'.
A variation angles right at the top of the fingercrack, a little more committing, same grade and ends at same ledge. Walk off.
