Description

Knobby face climbing around a thin crack leads to a large ledge.

This climb can be done in one long pitch, but it may be better to break it into two shorter ones to avoid rope drag issues. The ledge is the obvious place to break up the climb.

Broken climbing above the ledge leads to another short headwall. Either take the right arching crack on the right or the crack into gully on the left.

Location

The route is in the center of the longest section of cliff on the Holy Buttress Cliff.

There is no fixed anchor at top. Walk off climber's left back to the base.

Protection

Standard rock rack to 2.5". Thin gear is really helpful down low, but nuts will also work well.

Good, long-for-the-Stumps, climb. Think of it as a tall boulder problem (like everything else here) and the runouts won't seem as bad... Great variety of boulder moves, face, stemming, and crack, with a steep bulgy crux about 35-40 feet off the ground! Sep 12, 2018
