Description 

Butter Ball is located about twenty-five feet left of the Central Ramp, starts off a large, sloping ledge, and climbs the right side of the southwest face. Climb the vertical face on using deep, in cut holds that appear just when you need them. The climb is pretty sustained with a crux about 2/3 of the way up the route (thin face moves). Like Turkey Hooks, the anchors are set a way back from the wall. There is an annoying flake that makes rappelling or lowing hard on your rope � best just to walk off. Requires long slings to top rope. Good route, too bad it�s so short.

Protection 

Three bolts, long slings for the 2-bolt anchor.
