Warning Access Issue: Seasonal Closures 2024 - Bitty Buttress, Blob (Eagle Rock & Security Risk now open!) DetailsDrop down

Description Suggest change

This is a good climb with some interesting moves. This route starts with a few hard moves to reach and then to pass the first bolt, then cruises up past some more bolts and the true crux, continuing to the top of the arete, or wherever you decide to belay. The crux is pulling up on slopers on a shelf at mid-route and is 5.11.

Take some gear from 3/4" to 3" to belay from, as there is no anchor up top.

Location Suggest change

This route is the bolted arete left of Hambanger, on the "Bean Liquor Wall" (upper West face of Bell Buttress, up a gully).

Protection Suggest change

Several bolts to a topout and belay on gear. A set of cams and a few nuts or tricams will make the belay and protect any path to it.

Climb back down to rap from the anchors on Hambanger after the real climbing is over.
