Climbs the beautiful SE buttress, mostly on the right side, except to belay. Start from gully on east face, stepping left and up past two bolts, up prominent crack just east of the buttress. Pull around buttress to belay in groove/crack from slings. 2nd pitch goes up and right, back to east face and up past bolt.
mountaineering style descent along the otp and down a couple 4th class steps, then north. Should be pretty easy, but quite exposed. Great route both up and down!
A few small pieces, 3 bolts, some bigger cams/hexes work for the belay.
