Start by pulling into finger laybacks and locks to reach a sloped stance at a bomber hand jam. Leave the stance and enter a layback that leads to out-of-this-world finger locks and plated jugs to the anchors.  Getting into the layback is easier from one side of the crack than the other.  Figuring that out is half the fun.


This climb is located on the right hand side of the Burning Buttress, it is the obvious finger sized crack.


This route eats stoppers. Small cams may also be helpful up to about mid-height. Hand-sized pieces and larger for the top. Bolted anchor.

Great route, the #1 above the roof messes with getting a jam, I laid it back because the cam took up the jam, but you can move through with good protection below the roof. Must do Nov 10, 2016

No need for a No. 1 above the roof - a very good small nut (#4 BD-ish) goes in the bottom of that seam. The route can be safely protected with gear up to .75 camalot and is loads of fun! May 29, 2018
