Description

A striking line up the longest buttress at the Cirque. Mostly steep face climbing on large holds, many of which are loose and crumbling. Leading this route might feel like a chossy freesolo FA.

Probably best left as a TR after climbing some of the other nearby routes. If TRing - you must build your anchor on the lowest "summit ledge", as a 60M rope will barely reach the top of the 3rd class start from here. Knot the ends!

Location

The leftmost and longest buttress at the Cirque. This route follows the prominent arĂȘte through a few bulges.

Protection

A few skinny slings for some really marginal knob tie-offs, and a slim standard rack. Gear anchor.

Looking through the records book today.
I believe this is the route Margy Floyd and I did the FA of in 12/1989 which we called "Horns A'Plenty." We referred to it as the Orange Buttress as well. We rated it 5.7. Jul 11, 2017
