Description

Climb the first short pitch of Eeyores Enigma or Freak Show to the start of Under the Big Top. Once at the start, begin traversing under the big roof out right. Look for a piton and possibly some old slings to mark the spot where to build a hanging belay. Make sure to stop here least you be stricken with unbelievably horrific rope drag. Continue climbing out right ending at the bolted anchor and ledge that is the top of the second pitch of Travelers Buttress. Continue up Travelers or rappel to the ground with a 70m rope, or if you have a 60m, make a short rappel to the shotty anchors of Purple Haze and make one more rappel from there to the ground. Bring a leaver sling!

Location

The big obvious roof left of the second pitch of Travelers Buttress. You can't miss it.

Pumpiest 5.10 at the leap?

On another note - aside from the final bolted belay I think the entire climb would stay dry in the rain. Jun 12, 2017
