First pitch, short but sweet

Gate Buttress Area Recreational Lease: Climbs on Church Buttress above vault remain closed MORE INFO >>>


2 pitches up the west side of the Green-A gully.

P1: The first pitch follows a right facing flake with an excellent thin hands crack to a sling anchor. (50')
P2: The second pitch heads up to another ledge system and then follows the obvious OW.


Obvious OW/squeeze on the west side of the Green A gully. leads up to the 3rd pitch of the route, the Green Adjective. linking those together makes for a nice little outing of easy moderate wide cracks.


A single set would be fine. up to a #3 camalot. a new #6 could probably be placed as well if you want the security. I placed a #4 big Bro, but mostly just for the extra experience getting a big bro in.

Link pitches 1 & 2. Bring long runners. Quality!

Very nice & clean thin hands crack in the back of the flare on p1 with a short overhanging flake up higher that you can pull over (excellent) or layback (robbing yourself of the fun).

We named this after Harold, because he, being quite barrel chested, would not have fit very well into the offwidth.

2nd pitch was really fun. I think linking both pitches would make for a very enjoyable romp.
