Low crux on good jams leads to rotten, chossy rock but easy climbing. Very fun route, but be prepared for the head game at the top. 5.9 might be soft, but it is hard to say, as the crux is definitely concentrated in the beginning, and eases up considerably afterwards.


The route is directly right of EAT. Either traverse to anchors at EAT (5.10), or continue up the slab to sling a tree. Route can be walked off by continuing up as well. This is a good way to set up a top rope on EAT without hiking all the way around buzzards roost.


Takes small to large gear, can be led on medium gear. Careful placing cams in the rotten rock up top. Don't sling the tree in the middle, it isn't secure.
