This is an obvious line just to the right of I Did! I Did! and comes perilously close to that line. In fact, it is entirely possible that this is the route used to access the top of this small buttress. It takes a bit of effort to keep it distinct up near the top, perhaps bumping it to 5.5 or 5.6 if you try to stay off it.

Go up the loose slope. Climb a crack/dihedral past a bush. Avoid clipping the bolts. Finish to the top of the buttress. Downclimb to the anchor bolts down and right.

Note, if it is your route, let me know and I can update the info.


This is just right of I Did! I Did!.

Nice trad climb. If you end up not being able to share the anchor with the climb to the left, there are multiple options for belaying on top and walk off (which is a little bit loose).

Fun stuff.
