DescriptionThis is a more direct variation to pitch 3 of Southeast Buttress.
P1: climb a left-angling crack to a ledge. Traverse left to base of finger crack, and build an anchor.
P2: climb left angling finger crack approximately 15 feet up to place gear, then traverse 15 feet left on face holds. Then climb up good holds, and begin to climb up and right towards the main crack. Use thin finger pocket to reach for top of crack (the crux) with little to no gear (a 5.9 R/X rated move). Top out, and finish the regular route of Southeast Buttress.
Note: this is still a very uncleaned line. Light choss and loose rock are still very prevalent. A bolt or two on pitch 2 would make the climb a lot more fun and much safer.
