The Butterfly Effect climbs the obvious crack/corner just left of Consolation Prize. If you don't like offwidths, do NOT do this climb.

Start up a 5.9 stem box (somewhat chossy) and pass a bush. Good hands on low angled terrain steepens to the crux where the rock quality improves. Fight the offwidth roof (11a) to an easier wide crack mixed with some face climbing. When you're able, do a fully body squeeze into the canyon behind the crack. Rappel from a bolted anchor. This is so wild, so good.


Single BD C4 #0.5, double #0.75 - #5, triples of #4s, and 1 #6. A second #6 is optional for the top.
