Description

P1: Climb up a slab with a small overlap for about 60 feet into the trees at the foot of the arête. Move left toward the arête looking for a bolt. Stand on your tip toes and clip the bolt. (FA must have been really tall.) Climb down and swing around the arête riding it like a bucking bronco. Work up the arête to an overlap (frequently wet and mossy) and scrunch up and traverse right under the overlap. Climb a slab above you with one bolt to the anchors on the right. Be careful of rope drag as this is a circuitous route and a full rope length.

P2: Seldom done. Not worth doing.

Descent: Rap the route with two ropes to ground or with one rope to the treed corner where there is/was a sling and rap rings.

Location

Bucking Bronco Arête is a large right facing corner that is visible from the ground if you are looking for it. It is just to the left of Raven Groove. Look for a bolt on the slab that leads to a treed corner and a small arête.

Protection

Single rack. Bolts where needed.
