Easy going, over patina and plates past 4 kinda run out bolts brings you to the crux, a funky as heck move up onto the cap stone which crowns the Rattlesnake Buttress this climb is on.

The crux move is very well protected - make a clip, start the move, back off, think, start again, repeat. Really cool head game makes this seem much harder than it is!


In the middle of the Wall of Buttresses climbing a face that goes up to an obvious Hershey Kiss shaped capstone.


5 bolts, chain anchor
