A long varied route in the center of a great wall. Technical face climbing on a few thin crimps leads to a good rest below the brown overhang. Climb through this to the juggy arete above which has one more cruxy bit before the last bolt.


Middle of the Butterfly Wall, this is the brown overhang and green arete.


12 bolts + anchor, 70M rope

This route probably needs another bolt on the upper arete. The climbing is relatively juggy, but the runout may be a bit excessive. I'm interested to hear thoughts from those who've been on it?

It does have a wide variety of moves on interesting holds of all sizes with a fair amount of air to boot. Apr 29, 2012
THIN face climbing. It kind of gets hard really quickly, but leads to a really fun finsih. Oct 22, 2009
