Description1. Climb easy (5.5?) ground to an intermediate station with rings.
2. Change your shoes here if they got wet in the 5.5 section.
3. Hard face moves (11+) to a shallow dihedral between 2 aretes. Continue up the dihedral to more 5.11 and an anchor below some permadraws and some very steep rock. (See notes about project pitch below.)
LocationStarts on an easy slab (often wet, but easily climbable in approach shoes) at the lowest point on the buttress.
ProtectionAbout 18 QDs and a 70m rope. There are technically 3 pitches, but the first 2 are easily linked and the 3rd is a hard open project.
The project pitch is equipped with PermaDraws. Use caution if attempting. A 70m rope will _not_ be long enough for the whole route if your belayer is on the ground. Additionally, while both intermediate stations should be protected from rockfall, a belayer on the ground could be at risk.
