Donald Pump starts on the right side of the Buffet Wall and climbs diagonally right to left, finishing under the large roof that caps the Buffet Wall.

Donald Pump can be divided into three distinct sections. First, fun compression style climbing leads to a funky, leftward traverse to gain a chockstone in a corner. Catch a shake and continue leftward, delicately pulling and stepping across some of the chossiest Buffet Wall has to offer. The choss abruptly ends with bullet rock and small holds in the familiar band of rock about 2/3rds of the way up the wall where most Buffet Wall cruxes lie. Punch through this section and out a small roof to the anchors.

This route might deserve a PG-13 rating due to quality of the rock in the middle of the climb. However, since the route climbs diagonally, the belayer is relatively protected from any loose rock the climber may dislodge. Still, climb with caution.


Look for a left-leaning route on the far right side of the wall. There is a distinct chossy corner the route crosses over between the 3rd and 4th bolt.
