DescriptionThis fun route follows a series of sloping, horizontal breaks up the face of Leaning Buttress. After a bouldery start (physical crux), a ledge is reached, after which there are several highsteps and insecure moves between the breaks (psychological crux). After about 20 feet off the ledge, the climb eases off and follows the slab to the top.
The climb is given HVS 4c in guides, which roughly translates to 5.9. The bottom boulder crux may feel harder for shorties, but there's really just one 5.8 move by my estimation.
