The face between Tige and Buster Brown, following faint dikes. Well protected by 5 bolts and CDs to 2 inches. The crux is a bouldery sequence over the bulge at the second bolt (11+). The upper dike is 10b/c.


Descend by scrambling down to the north. (left as you face the cliff)


5 bolts, CDs to 2 inches. To rig a top rope, a long extendo rope (80 ft.) is handy. For the anchor: 3 to 4 inch CDs plus a huge block.

Nasty thin crux! Josh West has it at .11c and it definitely felt harder than that. Dike feature is super cool.

Tricky, inobvious crux. Really fun. Well-protected.
