A steep thin hands crack leads to a ledge. The crack thins to a seam above the ledge. Gear protected face climbing along the seam leads to another ledge.

If setting a top rope, build the anchor here. It may be best to stop here regardless before proceeding up the easy blocks up and to the right to reduce rope drag.


The route is about 20' up and right of the toe of the Holy Buttress Cliff.

There are no fixed anchors on top. Walk off to climber's right.


A standard rock rack with thin to 2.5". Nuts are especially useful in the business part of the seam.
