Mark on Butte-eous Maximus

Description 

BUTTE-EOUS MAXIMUS 5.7 ** 95'’ M (5b)
The steeper left side of the main south face, directly below the cold shuts on top. Begin 10'’ right of the "Why Raincoats Are Yellow" crack and climb the dark lower bulge (crux mantle on flaky rock), to the big ledge and delightful upper face. A range of cams is needed for the easier upper face. Consistent climbing on mostly wonderful rock.

Location 

the face just right of the intermittent vertical cracks at the left side of the main south face.

Protection 

mixed, 5 bolts and range of cams
