Description Suggest change

A great overhanging route that can be used for a warmup (or project) before attempting some of the more steeper routes on the Vision Buttress. The route has some very textured holds that stay dry and crisp during the most severe rain showers. Moderate, but steep climbing leads to a sequential crux involving a poor layback to a jug before clipping the anchors.

Location Suggest change

Located left of the steepest routes at the Y-12 on a ledge accessed from the left side of the wall. The route is also easily identified by the previous studs next to the first couple of bolts.

Protection Suggest change

5 bolts, open anchor shuts.
