  • Description 

    Do you enjoy pigeon sh!t? Thorny bushes? Choss? Run-outs? Then this is the route for you!

    This route also provides a summit route from the top of Bob's Buttress (5.9 OW above the chains) and Sandy Monster (5.8-9 face above the chains).

    Locate the obvious chimney right of Bob's Buttress and Sandy Monster. A large pile of pigeon sh!t marks the start.

    Climb up the chimney to a bench with a bunch of thorny bushes Gear for an anchor can be found. Continue up the chimney to another bench just before the scramble to the summit block.

    Protection 

    A single rack? We were able to only place 1 cam on the second pitch.

    A dust mask and long pants may also be advised.
