Description

The route goes up the large corner to the right of Bucky Blue, and right of Barb's Roof. It provides fun moves, well sustained climbing, and good protection.

Pitch 1: go up the slab to the tree and step around it on the left, continue up the corner past various blocks, up a short easier section, and past the large flake entering the Groove from the right. Belay from above the flake.

Pitch 2: continue up the corner. You can exit to the left onto the slab if you find it too spicy, but the best climbing is to go up all the way to the top of the corner, then up a crack to the big tree on Bucky Blue.

Alternatively, the two pitches can be combined and a belay set up on the ledge above the corner. This makes full-rope pitch with a 60m rope. Going to the top of Bucky Blue from here, by the way of the corner left of the big tree, is another full-rope pitch, and it makes a nice climb.

Location

The route is an alternative start to Bucky Blue and can be connected to Bucky's Shoulder as well.

Protection

Standard rack with emphasis on mid-size cams.
