Tim Kornish clips up 'Flying Time' on a go...

Description 

This route starts up an awkward slab to a large ledge. Shake out here and then start into the roof on a mix of jugs, slopers, and crimps. Good beta will make the crux seem much easier than without it, but thats half the fun. Cut your feet at the top for some amazing flying time! This was a top rope for years. Bolted in mid 90's

Location 

This route is not part of the second buttress proper, But just downhill. You will pass it as you take the approach trail up to the wall. Close proximity to the main trail, look for a large roof on the right. Belay from ledge at the base of the climb.

Protection 

quickdraws, chain anchors
