Description

If you've climbed Buff and are looking for a step up this is the climb for you. The jugs are fewer and further apart, and there is an awesome crux section on sequential pockets prior to some more long pulls on jugs and then joining the final rail of Buff.
Some tricky rests, of the kneebar varietal, can be found, but they are much less obvious than the two nearly no hands rests on Buff.
This is another Solstice Cave classic.

Location

Start in the back of the cave as for 'It Puts the Buff On', but break right taking the right line of draws the parallels Buff and shares the last few draws and same set of anchors.

Protection

Fixed draws to chain anchors.
