Climb up out of the pit on the center of the Nude Buttress. Easy, but excellent dihedral climbing leads to a no hands stem rest at 25.' From the rest continuous climbing leads to a final powerful crux pulling past the final roof. Initiating the crux requires pulling on a large black mica chip--a hold unlike any I've ever encountered before. This climb is hard on the skin, but otherwise every bit as good as other difficult Pass classics.


The 3rd sport route from the left on the wall. An abandoned, and unfinished project, lies in the next dihedral left--needs to be fully equipped.


8 bolts to a chain anchor.

Kurt Smith and I bolted this route and Unspoken Truth around 1987 or '88. I never got the red point on this but did it clean on toprope. As Josh mentions, the mica chip hold is pretty darn unique.
