Portions of the approach and cliffs of this area are on private land. Details
Please drive, camp, and climb in a low-impact manner to prevent losing access.
DescriptionPull up and on to the beautiful, baby's-butt like limestone to a decent jug. While the wall looks virtually blank, holds appear. The crux comes after the third bolt - from here, traverse to the left on crappy feet and small crimps; reach way out left to a sidepull and you're done with the technical crux.
After this low crux, the route eases off a bit for a couple bolts then becomes increasingly more inverted as you climb to a noticable cave under the roof. Climb into the cave, crack open a beer (if that's your thang), and enjoy the exposure: you'll be looking several hundred feet down into the canyon below.
The next crux comes as you pull the roof above the cave. After this, flow up through the fun fingerlocks while the route again becomes more overhanging to the anchors.
This route will definitely become one of the signature routes of the North Butt.
LocationThis route is located at about the middle of the North Buttress wall. It climbs into a cave-like orifice in the wall.
