Description

Start by pulling into finger laybacks and locks to reach a sloped stance at a bomber hand jam. Leave the stance and enter a flared layback that leads to out-of-this-world finger locks and plated jugs to the anchors.

Location

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

Protection

This route eats stoppers. Small cams may also be helpful at the bottom. Hand-sized pieces and larger for the middle and 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
