Description Suggest change

Start 25' left of the Flying Buttress Route in a right facing corner that has a very thin seam. Climb the corner utilizing chicken heads to a pointed flake (the Hound's Tooth). The first ascent used aid to move past the flake, it has now been freed at 5.11 c/d. Once above the flake continue up past a block to a belay ledge.

The second pitch continues up a 5.8 corner to the top. One can descend from the top of the dead snag above Lichen It.
