DescriptionThis is another very obvious route on the same buttress as Moon River, and Shaking the Goat.
Pitch #1: Climb the varnished thin hands corner. Fairly sustained and very good. Step left at a stance, on a white scoop, and belay at 2 good bolts with rings. 80-85ft, 5.10.
Pitch #2: Continue up the varnished corner. The crack gets a bit wider with more pure hands, before getting wider at the top with a short section of chimney. Belay at a small ledge, with 2 good bolts(chains) out to the right. 95-100ft, 5.10.
The route likely continues to at least the shoulder of the Buttress, possibly the summit.
