Description

Crux is fifth pitch, arguably between either the second and third bolts, or the third and fourth bolts. There is nowhere to place pro on this pitch.

Location

From the boulders where you park, bushwhack 2 miles along the relatively horizontal trail past culverts and river beds. The giant pipe indicating where to turn into the forest is VERY obvious (i.e. there are cairns on top of and next to the pipe). Many other pipes will be seen before the cairned pipe.
Walk very steeply uphill through the forest, ultimately heading up and the right when you are at the base of buttress.

We rapped down with 1 x70m and 1 x60m rope.

Consider bringing a machete to whack through the thorn bushes growing onto this seldomly used trail.

Protection

There are 1-4 bolts per pitch. Bolted anchors.
Bring a single set of cams, 0.1-1"
