Access Issue: June Voluntary Climbing Closure and Seasonal Raptor Closure Details

Description

By far, my FAVORITE route on the Buttress. I remember Carl telling me how much work it was bagging the first ascent. The route actually gets it's name for the pesky wasps that liked to hang out. For that reason, it might be a wise idea to rap the route first before you attempt the lead.

Start on a large, somewhat detached block climbing the large crack and face to it's top. Step left onto the main wall and work your way up to a small roof. A CLASSIC move will allow you to pull the roof and lead you up to a hands down rest. For me, the crux is negotiating the face back right to the corner. A two bolt anchor awaits.

Location

Right and down the slope from Lakota about 100 feet. This route is sometimes confused with Little Fingers.

Protection

RP's, BD Stoppers and a set of BD Camalots to #4. LONG RUNNERS are a MUST!
