Climb a large right facing dihedral/off width. Make strenuous layback moves, which are punctuated with no hands rests. Good gear placements may be found at the rests. At the top of the dihedral, make somewhat technical moves up and left onto the top of the buttress. It may feel much harder than 5.8 when climbing the route for the first time.

Large Gear (BD #2, #3, #4 cams, large hexes), and small/medium nuts for the top.
