This is an awesome climb! The crux is 2/3 the way through the first pitch. An airy roof traverse that seems scarier than it is. The rock is suprisingly awesome. This route is a true test of your mini roof climbing abilities.
P1.Climb the dihedral through the pineapple colored rock to the first roof. Veer left around the roof and continue 15 up a beautiful vertical crack on the north face until you acquire a small ledge (the guidebook says "placing good belay anchors here requires thought" is a very astute notation).
P2. Climb straight above ledge until possible to traverse right to arete.


This route is located on the northwest corner of Pineapple Buttress.
To find start scramble up gully north of buttress until above first short tier.
Descent: Walk to back of buttress and descend the left side.


Typical trad rack. No fixed gear and you make your own anchors.
