Description

Belay from base of the north-facing buttress that is directly to the west of the rock formation that runs between “Octabulgey” and “Periscope”. FA as well as rope solos done without the bolt, but the bolt was added to protect the lower crux as the natural protection to clear the bulge is not terrific. Rap/lower from two-bolt anchor at the top of the formation. There is an added bolt on top of the buttress to enable safe access to the anchors in case you come in from the top.

Location

North side of Shadow Buttresses, upper route.

Protection

Trad tricky pro. Single rack to 3 inches.
