Description

Great moderate climbing with increasingly beautiful views of the valley.

Pitch 1 - (5.6) This is the crux of the route. Jam and stem up a right facing dihedral to belay at a tree above. Move the belay up and across 3rd class for forty feet to the base of a wide crack. (120')

Pitch 2 - (5.5) Climb the wide crack to the top of a pedestal and then continue slanting right across 5.4 territory to an alcove. (180')

Pitch 3 - (5.3) Slab climb up a knobby face to a large ledge. (120')

Pitch 4 - (5.5) Climb up the face to a right facing flake then either climb to the large roof and move right under the roof, or move right into a crack and avoid the roof entirely. Belay at a small tree.

Pitch 5 - (5.6) Climb up the crack and onto the face to the top of the buttress.

Descend by walking off into the gully on the left.

Location

As you walk up the trail from the parking area After Six is the first climbing route that you come to on the left side of buttress.

Protection

Set of nuts, small cams to 2 inches.
