Description 

The first pitch is really one of a kind and worth doing if you have done the rest of the buttress, I wont spoil it here by trying to describe it although the name hints at what is to come. The rest of the way to the top is meh. doing P1 and rapping maybe a good option for most unless you are interested in a tradventure.

Location 

go past good heavens continuing along the base of the buttress, go under the large overhang, the "Trail" becomes a bit of a ledge system with a few squeezes between cliff and trees. Look for the sweet looking ~15ft chimney with awesome hand crack on the left side and grass surrounding the base. 7.16.17 - chopped out a bit of the "trail" with machete.

To top this out after a ~170ft P1 we unropped and walked climbers right about 250ft to a large Oak tree with huge hole where the top bit broke off, also has large branch at the base about 12in thick. Go up and slightly left following relatively easy 5.6 choss and gullies to the top.

I made several attempts to get a true P2 from the top of P1, following the crack to the large notch yielded very poor quality hollow rock, going climbers left yielded quite difficult traverse moves over a huge drop! will be a sweet route one day when the moves can be figured out
