The book calls this a 5.8 face climb. The face is harder than 5.8 and there is a nice finger crack in corner to the right. So, slab start, up crack in corner,a few face moves to anchors? Was wondering if I was on the right route.


Located at the "toe" of the buttress. Last route on left before steep pumice slope, by itself.


I found 8 bolts(book says 6).

Fun climb. It just didn't match up with book description. Anyone know what's up with this one?

Fun and worth doing. We enjoyed staying in the hand crack in the corner, too.
