Description

Start off the large ledge, clip the first bolt and figure out good feet to push up and past the crux over the small roof. Climb the easy patinas to the top, best to rappel off to save your rope some wear. Also be careful when pulling the ropes, it is very easy to get them stuck on the featured face.

Location

Center face of Virgin Buttress, best reached by scrambling up from left of the base of Queen's Chase then tunneling in and up to the ledge of the base of the climb.

Protection

5 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

The crux is getting up and over the roof, easy climbing up a featured face from there. Dec 23, 2017
