Description 

The crux moves are bolt protected, which says something about the nature of the climbing, hard slabby face holds. The route is well worth the journey up here. I have not explored Swingline yet but that looks great. The 2nd pitch crux is a thin crack but still climbs like face holds.

Location 

middle of the Buzzbomb buttress, there is a 5.9 bolted route directly left of this- Softserve. The ledge is narrow and exposed, keep your water bottles and roly-poly things safe.

Protection 

5 bolts on 1st pitch and I think 5 on next pitch. mostly small cams as well. Rap anchors

We climbed this today in warm dry conditions. Probably the fifth time I've done this route. So much fun. Two pitches that features three consecutive mantels on the first pitch, and a really cool but short finger crack on the second pitch. Steep, airy, and bolts only when absolutely needed! Ron and Brad created a gem with this one!
