But for a Silver Bullet is a new trad route located to the left of Tom Thumb, and shares a beginning with The Lone Ranger. This is a good beginner trad climb. Approximately 75 feet long. Start slightly to the right of the slot that becomes Funhouse Chimney, and move up and right to a ledge. Move right to a large dihedral and crack located on a corner buttress. Opportunities for placing good protection abound in this crack. Lieback up the crack for about 20 feet before reaching a solid ledge big enough for both feet (same beginning as The Lone Ranger). Once atop the buttress, move up and left staying in the crack system on the left that will take you all the way to the anchor hooks.
All trad. Good protection all the way. Small to medium cams and assorted small to medium stoppers. One #4 Camalot to protect the top move to the lowering hooks if desired. Two-bolt anchor with lowering hooks.
