DescriptionA fun excursion up the buttress with a real grunter of a crux. Those old dudes loved their chimneys. There's some exposure too on the upper section. Goes okay in the rain.
1) 100ft 5.4. Up a groove and blocks to a big grassy ledge.
2) 80ft 5.4. Up a steep wall beneath The Gash, go right and belay.
3) 60ft 5.6. Grunt your way up the chimney (crux) - perhaps removing your pack. Then head up a wall to the crest of the ridge above The Gash.
4) 120ft 5.0. Follow the crest of the ridge in a great position.
5) 120ft 5.0. Continue up the ridge until stopped by a steep wall.
6) 60ft 5.6. Traverse right then up another , which is not quite so strenuous as the first, but can be perennially wet, to land surprised at the top of the climb.
Traverse north to the summit.
