Racked for the FA of The Right Cheek


This buttress is the landmark immediately to the right of White Lightning. There is a huge fir tree with the large rock blocks near the trail marking the base. All three routes on it were inspired and named due to the natural, no clothes style of the first ascent. No drugs were involved in the ascents and only the belayer's eyes were harmed.
