Far left side of Crack of Noon buttress. Start in an obvious steep awesome looking dihedral corner. Clip bolts through the beginning and gradually steepening dihedral. For 2-3 bolts it is game-on with hard desperate moves. The rock is super clean. Eventually you clip a bolt and the crux is over leading to a nice 10b-ish crack finish protected by small cams and stoppers. Easy fun finish on natural gear.


Left of Crack of Noon on the same buttress.


Mostly Bolts with a couple small cams on the top easier part. First part of route is all bolted through the crux. 2-4 pieces of natural gear to finish on the 10b section at the top (small cams .0 - .5).

Used to be all bolts. Top 2 bolts were removed to honor the FA of the route on the right which was done on gear and finished on the last part of what is now "High Noon". Oct 28, 2017
Great rock on this one. Oct 4, 2018
