DescriptionClimb face clipping two bolts (5.12-), pass the wide crack of Flared Bear (which arcs right) and then continue up the steep and improbable face above (5.11) to the end of the difficulties where the route joins The Butt Buttress at it's second bolt. The route finishes with the upper portion of that route and shares it's bolted anchor.
Incredibly sustained and technical, this route is a testament to the vision and slab mastery of the first ascentionist. Seldom done, but worth a go if hard slab climbing is your bag. Two stars out of five.
