Description

The easiest quality line at the crag so far. This line follows the slabby buttress near the left end of the cliff.
Boulder up (technical crux) up a short wall and rock over onto a short bit of slab (bolt) to gain a short easy corner with a hand crack (cam or two). Exit the corner and follow bolts up the high quality stone of the buttress until you reach another short band of featured steeper rock. Follow this up and right making use of the hand cracks (a couple more cams) to a bolted anchor. Fun!

Location

Far left side of the Main Wall, about 25 feet left of the right facing corner of Remember Me that is 40' up on the wall. The trail around to the far left has gotten partially camouflaged by a fallen tree whose root ball you now have to ascend.

Protection

5 SS 3/8"Fixe bolts and a handful of 3/4" to 2" cams, quickdraws and a few slings. The anchor bolts (1/2" SS Rawl 5 pc) currently just have a biner on each (forgot the quicklinks), so if you have a couple spare 3/8" or bigger quicklinks or biners bring them along. A spot for the start is nice, particularly if it is anywhere near your limit, since it is hard to stick clip the first bolt.

Climbed as a warmup. Surprisingly committing for a mostly bolted climb with lots of slab moves. Oct 17, 2016
