The official crux is someplace within the first 30 feet or so, but the beauty of the climb lies in its sustained and slightly overhanging nature.


About 30 feet to the right of Buffalo Soldier.


Six bolts.


Great climbing. Every move is totally doable, the holds are mostly friendly, and it is super-sustained. Apr 21, 2008

Great route. Once when I was younger, I was upstaged by a 60+ year old free soloist between tries. Jan 1, 2009
The original lead came in from the left using the horizontal crack above the second bolt on the direct. If done this way it is the technical crux of the entire climb involving a strenuous iron cross move. Probably 5.11b/c. 1 bolt on the traverse. The horizontal crack can be seen in the photo.

Classic jug hauling. Gym climbers should hike this. Nov 30, 2016
