DescriptionThis is only for the first two pitches, I'll update with more complete information when I go back to finish the route. If you have better info for pitches 3 & 4, PM me.
P1 (5.11/5.11-): Clip the first bolt (from the ground?) and climb steeply to the base of the roof. fire out the roof on good holds and then figure out the exit strategy before the gas runs out. (I found the 4th bold to be oddly placed for where the route seemed to go). Above the roof, engaging face climbing past a few bolts (and one chopped stud) leads to a spacious belay stance on a ledge with a fixed anchor.
P2 (5.10+): Move right and climb easily over stacked blocks and cut back left on the high angle ramp to a small roof, a groove, and a bolt. Make a reachy move (harder if short/lacking on reach) into the groove and follow bolts up to a sloping ledge. Step right and climb some fun face trending left to another sloping. Clip a stud poorly cinched over with a stopper and a frozen nut and then be happy to clip the next bolt which protects an awkward step right below the "plated roof" to a stance. Clip up and out of the roof system to a stance below the vegetated ledge. Make oddly unnerving moves topping out the vegetated ledge to a fixed anchor in a big block at the front of the vegetated ledge.
P3 (5.10+): doliver: "'...great face climbing with a couple cruxy mantle bulges ... 2 bolt anchor 10d "
P4 (5.10-): doliver: "Follows a few bolts up under the "diving boards" then pulls some wild moves up through them to a two bolt anchor on the top of the main diving board. 10a great view at top!"
LocationStart: About 100' down from the vegetated shoulder that bisects the base of the buttress. Look for an obvious 3 foot deep roof 20 feet up with a low bolt on its right side.
Descent: Single 60m rappel
