Description

P1-Find the small crack that splits the tier, it faces north east. Aid up the overhanging crack using small TCU's and stoppers a few bigger cams appear near the lip. Pull up and over and find belay near trees.Big Belly pitch C2

P2- From belay scramble out left(west)on moderate ground. Locate the low angle crack that splits the front(south) of The Buddha and climb to a really enjoyable summit. 5.7+

Location

From the steep gulley/forest that you just walked up look for a chimney on your left. Climb this to it's apex and flop over on the 1st pitch belay ledge. This ledge has big air feel as you just slogged a few hundred feet and now you are looking out over the HWY.

From the ledge just gained look for an obvious overhung splitter that juts up and goes to the next tier.

Descend from fixed anchor off the summit to the 1st pitch belay ledge. From there make the "move" back into the chimney. We fixed a piece of webbing at that point, but it probably needs replaced.

Protection

A full rack of TCU's, full set of Stoppers, HB's might help, and cams up to the old #4 camalot. Slings and QD's. Steps very helpful. 2 ropes
