This is found on Rupley tower E. From the gully between towers C and D, go up the chimney to the southwest (right side facing downhill). Look up at the face to the right until you see the "Butt" - it is a very well named route. Slabby start to a ledge below the butt, which pretty close to the ground. Clip the bolt on the right cheek and make like a hemorrhoid, Once you get past the butt it is much easier climbing above. Squuezing the Lemmon has this at 5.10-


One bolt on the right cheek protects the crux. The rest is trad gear - nuts and cams to 2.5"
