Description 

This area incorporates both Primitive South and Primitive North, separated by the Pinecrest Buttress. Primitive Buttress harbors many quality multipitch routes and some good cragging that's easy to mix in with a Pinecrest visit. Primitive south is generally sunny and Primitive north is mostly shaded, making this area climbable year 'round.

A fantastic corner route with thin edging and technical sequential moves. Some of the gear is tiny but it's locker. When the crack really thins down to nothing, theres a bolt to clip. This route is downright amazing whether you are the seasoned leader or just getting into corner climbing. It really doesn't get any better than this. Techy, splitter, airy....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
