Description [Edit]

Tango Buttress tackles the thin, slabby face just right of Tango Crack. It is unique and interesting in that it features a thin boulder problem crux right at the bottom, then eases off substantially. The given grade is HS 5a.

Start just right of the crack with a left hand crimp and a right hand finger stack in a sloping dimple. Make a hard move to a poor horizontal, then continue up with increasing ease. At half height, you will encounter an angling right-facing groove. Delicately balance up this and join the top of Tango Crack.

Location [Edit]

On the low angle face just to the right of Tango Crack. Walk off right.

Protection [Edit]

Largely unprotected. The boulder crux is right off the ground, and at 12 feet there is pro. After that, the climbing eases substantially but there are only a few small nut placements.
