On the right side of the buttress is a left-leaning black streak. Climb this past two bolts to a belay at a sloping area.
Move out left to a crack and follow it to the top.
Descend 4th class to the right.


Standard rack.

Thought it was fitting to climb the namesake route on this formation on it's namesake day - 6/21/12.

Both pitches on this route can be easily combined into a rope stretcher 60M pitch. 2 bolts, emphasis on gear from 0.75 camalot to fingers. Fun, if not awkward, finger jams and liebacking at the crux.

2 bolt rap anchor (2 ropes, ~190') to climbers right of belay ledge. Could use a few quicklinks and a single 1' length of chain to replace the tat currently in place. Jun 25, 2012

Got weather'd off this past weekend and subsequently had to rap in to retrieve some gear. Decided to improve the rap station while I was at it. The lowest bolt now sports a quicklink with a steel ring and the higher bolt has a link, "repurposed tat" and another steel ring. A length of chain would be ideal, but for now it's better than it was. Jul 16, 2018
