Description

Mildly tricky and with some fun moves thrown in for good measure. Find the key pockets to get to and above the 4th bolt, and then it is “cruiser” to the anchors. Although a short route it’s worth doing since you’ve made the hike.

Listed here at its original rating in the Ruckman guide, but seemed easier than the route to the left.

Location

The RIGHT of two routes on the south-west side of the bulge at the left (uphill) end of the buttress.

Protection

5 bolts to welded cold-shut anchors
(Two bolts have been added to the route since the Ruckman guide was published.)
