Description

This is the rightmost bolt line on the south-facing buttress. Start with easy slab moves to the first bolt, then follow the right arĂȘte of the buttress all the way to the top. It has varied and interesting moves throughout: cracks, underclings, laybacks, overhangs, and thin slabs. The crux seems to be getting over the final bulge before the anchors, on sharp crystals with terrible feet. A rest before the final bulge makes it a good candidate for an onsight.

Protection

12 bolts plus an anchor. The topo (yellow line) shows approximate locations for some of them.
