DescriptionClimb up a beautiful black and red streaked wall on the Nude Buttress. Some old Leeper Hangers next to '90s era bolts are likely from an old Harvey Carter aid route, which worked right up the seam into the corner above. Easy but technical climbing off the ground leads to a powerful undercling crux, a good jug rest at mid-height, and a final redpoint crux just before lower angle terrain is reached.
Jeff Hollenbaugh remembers belaying Kurt Smith while he worked on this route in the early '90s but thinks it's unlikely that Kurt ever finished the route.
LocationThis is the second sport route from the right on the crag. Old Leeper hangers help identify the line.
