Description

5.14 has arrived at Ibex. I have NOT done this route, but am hoping, with its addition here, it will spark more interest in hard routes at Ibex and better beta will be added by those doing them. Huge Kudos to Kemple and Linder for putting up such a striking line on the right corner of the Shadow Buttress. This is apparently already on film and available for viewing from one of Mike Call's climbing DVDs....watch it!
Access to the line is by climbing past the first pitch of Absorption and belaying just above the prominent Mormon Tea bush. Then, for the business, cutting loose out left up the grey wall following bolts through the overhanging brown streaks.

Location

Starts to the left of Absorption on the right arete of Shadow Buttress ascending the improbable overhanging brown streaks about 50m around the corner to the right of Nose Shadow.

Protection

Bolts.....lot's of them.
