Description

P1 (5.9): Climb up the slabby face trending left to the short right-facing corner with the cool notched flake. Turn your brain on and shift left and climb some steeper rock (crux) to lower angle terrain above. Move right following a dirty crack and bolts to a final engaging exit onto a vegetated ledge and a fixed anchor.

P2 (5.10): From the belay anchor, trend up and left behind the tree on blocks to the first bolt. Make moves left, with difficulty, until you can make an unlikely escape upward to a right-leaning horizontal finger crack that leads to the base of the left-facing left-leaning corner. Climb the corner (easier than it looks) until it is possible to traverse right under the bulge (loose rock). Make the airy traverse out right and try to piece together the features to angle up and right following the bolts to the fixed anchor.

Location

Start: Downhill about 150 ft. from the vegetated ridge/shoulder that bisects the base of the buttress at a small clearing at the base of the cliff. Look for a line of bolts that lead to a small right-facing corner with a clear notched flake.
Descent: Single 60m rappel

Protection

P1: At least 12 Draws, light rack to 1", fixed anchor
