Description'The Butcher' rarely sees any repeats because of it's sustained, sharp crimp, face climbing style.
Start on 'Energy Czar'. Trend up and right after the third bolt. Two options here.
(5.12)- Staying right of the bolt line was the original intention of this reachy crimp option.
(5.11+)- Staying slightly cliff left of the bolted line yields a technical, crimpy, but less reachy alternative to the (5.12) variation.
Originally this route shared an anchor with INSTANT KARMA DIRECT(5.10d) but this anchor is in need of some repair. Climb up to the ENERGY CZAR(5.10c) anchor located on the big ledge.
LocationThis route starts on the same line as 'Energy Czar' but veers right at the third bolt.
Right of 'Caterpillar'.
Left of 'Instant Karma Direct'.
