Description [Suggest Change]
The route starts at the actual toe of the buttress, and follows an elegant line almost directly upward to the summit. The first pitch is the most difficult, just below some yellow overhangs. Othewise the route stays at the 5.5-5.6 level for the bulk of the climb. rappel to the North from a series of fixed ring anchors. The first abseil is 30 meters, so a 60 or 70 meter rope is advised.
