DescriptionThis is the prominent, straight crack line on the left side of the buttress. Start on talus/dirt around the corner to the left and a few feet up the hill, traverse right into the thin crack/seam on big holds, then continue up. In a few sections it is easier to face climb to the left.
This is a fine route, but requires solid nut skills and has ugly decking potential (PG-13/R).
The upper third of the climb has two variations to the left.
