DescriptionIn Memoriam climbs a prominent line up the center of Shoshone's Upper Buttress. Going years without seeing many climbers, a recent increase in ascents has cleaned this quality route up and further ascents will help make this route classic.
Enjoy climbing the awesome handcrack on the second pitch's "Red Sickle" and also the clean slab climbing on the first pitch.
LocationRoute begins at the center of the large ledge where Poison Flower, Hop on Pop, Renaissance Man, and the Standard Route begin. Look for thin flakes leading up to two good bolts.
Pitch One: Climb past bolts to a tricky move left into a crack. Follow this crack past a bulge with a fixed pin, and finally step right to a bomber bolted belay. 170 ft.
Pitch Two: Step left into crack from belay and climb up red sickle. Traverse right under roofs until cracks lead up and left around roof. Follow discontinuous cracks to top and tree belay. 170 ft.
