Description

The first pitch is mostly good hands to some OW and back in to good hands and fun climbing. It lasts about 100 feet. It is well-protected and awesome climbing to a fat belay ledge.

The second pitch continues from fat ledge through the roof, easy climbing after pulling through the roof, and a walk off to the right.

Location

The route follows a fairly obvious line up the middle of the buttress through a roof at the top. Start on a solid flake with good hands.

Protection

0.3-#5 Camalots with a set of nuts. There is a tree to belay off of at the top of the second pitch.
