Description

A great way to spice things up! Depending on the variations you do, this route could be as easy as 5.7, but I will describe the most challenging way to go about it.

P1: Start just left of the first pitch of Reunion at an obvious wide hand/fist crack. Climb this (5.8) to a ledge with a tree.

P2: Climb up the dogleg crack in the face above the ledge (5.7) Above the dogleg, the crack makes a "Y". Continue straight up the beautiful fingercrack on the right to a belay on the ramp above (5.9)

For the next pitch, either climb the third pitch of Classic (5.7), or the second pitch of Karl's Corner (5.8) to the top of the Flying Buttress.

Rappel Coke Bottle, or continue up High Exposure (5.6+) or Beaver Cleaver (5.8+) to the top.

For an easier first pitch, do the first pitch of Reunion to the ledge with the tree instead.

For an easier second pitch, climb out left above the wide dogleg instead of straight up the thin fingers.

Location

Located on the left side of the flying buttress, around the corner to the right from the start of Classic and just left of the start of Reunion.

Protection

Gear to 3 inches
