Access Issue: Burned out house with a boarded up shack. Details

Description

P1. Climb the east face through broken rock and ledges, pass an overhang on the right side and through a slot, and set belay at top of the spire.

P2. Downclimb to gain the wall behind the top of the spire. Traverse left following a crack until below vertical crack which leads to the top. Set good pro at bottom & middle of crack, and shoot for the top through a runout upper section. With a cleaning tool, you may be able to get more pro in this crack.

Location

On west face of Violator Buttress to east of a shack, find a nice looking, short crack on a slab just below the summit.

Protection

A standard rack.

This climbs the west face of Violator Buttress. Our second pitch followed a thin crack that is visible high on the upper left of the west face. It ends on the very summit of the Violator Buttress. Apr 21, 2018
