Description

The route begins on a 20 foot section of wall that is sprinkled with edges and pockets. Once this is climbed you find yourself standing on a terrace where you could concievably unrope and walk off. The upper portion of the route begins at the bottom of a slightly overhanging, blunt arete just over your head, and finishes at anchors just shy of the top of the formation. Nice route, except for the huge ledge breaking it in two

Location

Approx. 75 yards right of Wolf Wall is a large, buttress-like formation. This feature appears directly up hill from you during the final 100 yards of the approach trail. The cliff's exact shape is kind of complex here but the 'buttress' is actually an island of stone, detached from the main cliff behind it.

This route also begins on the same vertical wall just left of Hot Wing. Ascending erosional features (pockets, huecos, edges) ~25 feet to a large ledge (with laurel bush), which breaks the route into two sections. The second section begins on the overhanging arete-like feature and ascends through nicely formed features on what might generally be described as a broad, slightly overhanging, arete ...and ending adjacent to a large roof feature near the top-left of the formation.
