Description Suggest change

Climb up 20 feet of easy, broken ledges and clip the first bolt of the route on the smoother area directly above the broken area. Then, using pockets and sidepulls, get past the smooth area and continue through another six bolts. There are plenty of pockets and a jug always seems to appear just when you need it. Just before the last bolt the pockets and feet get scarcer; after the last bolt the angle eases and you climb 10 feet of easy terrain to a ledge with the chains.

This is a pretty fun climb and worth doing. Even when Escape Buttress has been crowded I’ve never seen anyone on this route (or either of its two neighbors).

Location Suggest change

This route is located on a bulge about 50 feet before the west end of Escape Buttress proper and is one of three routes that you encounter on your left on the way to Escape.

This is the middle of the three routes; note that the bolts for the right-most of the routes are hard to spot. Looking at the bulge described above there is a smoother, blank-appearing area about 20 feet up from the trail. This route starts on the right of the two bolts at the bottom of the smoother area.

Protection Suggest change

7 bolts, chain anchors (shared with the route to the left).
