Description

A steep lie back gets your attention just off the belay; this is most likely the crux of the climb. The climb protects well, but can be a little pumpy at the start; so move quickly to avoid landing on your belayer.

Location

This is a large obvious flake that runs right through the center of the Lower Bulge Buttress. It is 165 feet to the top and can also be a good first pitch to get to the start of Super Pooper, The Step or The Flakes.

Protection

Small to three inch camalots will do the trick. The large pine tree on top of the buttress works well for an anchor, but can be full of sap; consider building an anchor just past the tree.
