Description Suggest change

Climb 25 feet up Buttress Chimney, the wide crack between the Sunshine Face & Buttress of Cracks, and then enter a flared chimney (5.9) below a striking crack. 

Wiggle up the chimney and then launch directly into the crux, which can be jammed straight-on or lie-backed depending upon your hand size or preference.

 Higher the crack makes a jog left via a steep hand crack (5.10+) and finishes with some easy moves to a ledge with a bolted anchors.

  • Rappel or make an easy down climb off the backside, which leads to a notch where you can pick up a trail leading back to the base.

Location Suggest change

This classic crack is found on the left end of the Buttress of Cracks, just left of the classic Double Exposure arete, and facing towards the Sunshine Face.

Protection Suggest change

Gear to 3 inches, bolted anchor
