Description

Follow the bolted arete 10' left of the first pitch dihedral of Thunderpussy. Finish the pitch on the final handcrack bit of Thunderpussy to the pod belay. A beautiful, airy pitch! For a really great outing, skip the manky belay pod and string Savor the Flavor together with Thunderpussy's second pitch for a spectacular single pitch (a FULL 60m) which is on par with the best in the canyon!

Location

Found on the north side of Pineapple Buttress. Slog up the steep gully and scramble up some short steps to the base. This bolted arete begins 10' left of Pineapple Thunderpussy.

Descent: Make two rappels off of good chains (60m will require a bit more downclimbing than a 70), or walk off the back of the buttress and down either gully. The southern one is more pleasant, but doesn't pass by the base of the route and any gear you may have left there.

Protection

7 bolts and a standard rack of cams and stoppers. A cordalette or double-length runner is handy for the belay. Bring extended slings if you plan to do this in one pitch.
