Description

This is currently the 2nd from the left of the bolted routes on this buttress. It starts on what appears to be a smoothish slab.

Hop onto the slab (best part). Find a nice left foot edge and reach for the diagonally thin crack (crux). Scamper up to a ledge, you can protect with a #1 or #2 Camalot, then a yellow or possibly red Alien. Angle up and right to 2 bolt anchors with Mussy hooks. With the bolts so close, you could probably traverse further right to select between this route and the next 2 route's anchors. Note, the two key slab holds feel like they will round down and become less positive with traffic. Addendum: some folks say this is 11- now.

It's probably between 1-2 stars. The route to the right is better.

This had been given a name within the database, but someone has deleted it. Now others have provided the name, Hustle. This may have been climbed in the 1980s by Ed Ash.

Location

This is currently the second from the left of the bolted climbs on this little buttress.

Protection

7 bolts + a few cams from yellow Alien/TCU to #1 or 2 Camalot.
