DescriptionThis route is a variation on the 5.8 trad line Bud Collins that splits right into a thin, left-facing corner after about 30'. The NCCC guide calls it 5.11c/d, but I had a hard time finding any moves that tough, not to say it was easy...clearly it hasn't been climbed in a while and was dirty, crumbly, and had some committing face climbing with gear well below your feet. It felt like the crux was well-protected however.
The NCCC guide, along with the eye test, didn't show any anchors for lowering, I think this route is supposed to be a walkoff. I ended up doing a wonky traverse to the anchors above High Steppin'. A 70m rope was necessary to toprope/lower from these anchors.
LocationIt is on the left side of the south face, on the main slabby part of the wall before all the corners start further left.
