Access Issue: Located in a National Forest Fee Area Details


Starts with jugs to the first bolt over a small roof then fairly thin between the first and third bolts. The crux is just after the fourth bolt. Thin, but reasonably good feet and some sidepulls will see it through (kinda scary though - it's a good distance from the fourth to the fifth bolt).

After the fifth bolt it is much easier with only one last thin move right before the last bolt.

Overall, a fun, longish route (A 60m rope is plenty; a 50m would probably be just long enough - a knot in the end would be a good idea).


This is the 5th route from the left on the main section of Escape Buttress. It's unmistakable because the first bolt is at the lip of a small roof.


8 lead bolts, 2 anchor bolts with chains.
