DescriptionP1: Go up a left-trending gully system to a loose block, then move up and leftward under a small roof. Continue up the shallow dihedral above to a large ledge, (or, the featured face just to the left of the dihedral). From this ledge, either (a): continue straight up the next 20' of climbing still in the same pitch, and then belay in a grassy area with some dead trees below the steep 5.8 face with the old bolts and pins. Alternatively, from the large ledge, (b): traverse right and go up a 3rd/4th class gully to the same stance below the 5.8 face, 100'.
P2: Step first up and right, then move back left, to the 30' vertical face which has 2 fixed pins for pro and 3 hangerless 1/4" bolts (bring hangers or use wired stoppers on these). You can supplement the ancient pins with gear. Belay at a large block. This puts you at the top of the buttress.
Scramble down a 3rd class slot to the left, or rappel the main face.
LocationThis climb, the leftmost documented route on Thanksgiving Rock, begins 60' uphill and left of the toe of the Thanksgiving Rock buttress, on the first place on the N side of the formation that looks worth climbing. Identify an obvious leaning diagonal crack to cue in on the start.
Descent: downclimb 3rd class down a sloping slot to the N of the buttress. There is also a new rappel route down the center of the buttress. See this page for details.
