DescriptionA route like this is like the Loch Ness Monster, elusive and ever sought after....
Great second buttress rock, some interesting mixed climbing, and a bit of ice make this a great route close to home.
P1: head up the gully until you hit a short rock step ~25 feet. Climb two more short rock/ice steps to a ledge with a chimney on the left and an OW with a chockstone to the right. Mostly dry tooling with the occasional bit of ice.
P2: climb the OW with the chockstone, good hooks with a bit of ice. Climb the WI4 runnel, rock pro can be found in either side of the slot if the ice is too thin for screws. Continue up this to the top of the buttress.
Descent: walk over to the Journey Through Gwonondaland anchors. Two raps with a 60m will take you to the base.
