This is the prominent right facing dihedral in the center/right of the buttress. Climb up a slab past two bolts, then work up the dihedral past two more bolts to crack and lieback features. Finish just above a huge (somewhat precarious) block and mussy hook anchors.

The crux is around the 4th bolt. It is possible to stem the dihedral or paste feet in the corner.

Rumor has it that an old piton was found on the 'FA' thus 'Rewritten.'


See Crack of Noon Buttress topo picture.


4 bolts, small to medium nuts and cams.

I felt that there was significant ledge fall potential in the slabby dihedral. Good climbing but probably deserves at least a PG rating. Oct 4, 2018
