This is the route to the right of "Bulgey or Bustey" that begins from the ground, about 20 ft lower and farther west. FA and subsequent ascents done on gear only, but 1 bolt was added above the obvious gear near the base that will help you locate the start. Opening moves can be tricky, but are spottable with a small cam protecting. Runout easy ground on a gentle ramp leads to the blocky steeper section with decent gear. A second bolt was also added near the top to protect the thin vertical face prior to easier ground to the same anchors used for Bulgey or Busty.


Starts from the northern base of the buttresses. See route map.


Trad, small to medium cams with 2 bolts added to help with the runout lower section and the steep upper face.
