Connective Tissue is another quality Surgery Buttress line with great limestone.

Climb the steep, juggy crux of Pre Op, and continue up the corner to the 4th bolt. Clip the bolt, tiptoe left and clip the first bolt on Connective Tissue. You'll want to place a long draw or back clean the 4th bolt of Pre Op. Head up on some delicate climbing to an easier 5.10 crux before the anchors.


It shares the same start as Pre Op before heading left.


7-8 bolts to anchor.

This has some fun moves, but it had some really loose rock.... Pulled off a few good-sized chunks with little weight.... I would not recommend it. The route right to the right of it however is really nice.
