DescriptionThe Indian Buttress Chimney is the large obvious intimidating, why on earth would I climb into the belly of the beast chimney system, separating the main buttress from the rest of the formation. Super classic chimney route.
Pitch 1, Climb short chimney to splitter discontinuous crack system leading towards super clean mini left facing corner (5.7), to large ledge with giant pine tree for belay, 60+ meters. (WARNING) top of mini left facing corner is a large refrigerator sized block, way sketch but can be avoided!
Pitch 2, Climb into the belly of the beast and yes it protects well. 60 meters to another large pine tree just shy of the Indian Buttress Summit.
