Description [Suggest Change]
A short, brutally thin seam that starts low on the Twilight Buttress. More of an RP-protected boulder problem than anything else. Jam and lieback the obvious seam past two fixed pins, using some small features on the face as well. The crux comes about a third of the way up, just before making a long move to an edge out right. Difficult to rate -- .13b or c, but some others should try it to consolidate the grade. A great route!
Location [Suggest Change]
Start low on the twighlight buttress, off of a steep slope. There is a large boulder and pine tree just left of the start.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Two fixed pins, small TCUs, and brass nuts. Lowe Balls are nice but not necessary. A bolt protects the mantel onto the slab at the top. Plese don't nail this route! It goes clean, whether aid or free.
