P1. Climb up and left past two bolts to a short crack up to a ledge with a two bolt anchor.

P2. Climb blocky, broken rock past a bolt to a ledge.

P3. Climb a short, left-diagonaling crack to a small ledge. Traverse ten feet to a left-facing dihedral with a four inch crack. Climb this 12 feet and break right under a small roof. Climb the shallow, left-facing corner to a two bolt anchor.


It is on the far right side of the Nude Buttress.


Bolts and a light rack up to a #4 Camalot.

Nice route for teaching multi-pitch leading, etc. Good gear supplemented by bolts. Last pitch will be much less stressful for the 5.7 leader with a #4 Camalot. A bit brushy on the second pitch, but will clean up with traffic. Thank you Josh and Amos for taking the time to put this in.

We rapped from the bolts at the top of first pitch, while descending Brainstorm, then TR'ed P1. I found it dirty, with loose rock on the ledges.
