Bouldery awkward climbing around a large intrusion up to a ledge. An awkward move leads into easy climbing in a right facing v-slot up to the top. Belay on a large ledge above the slot.


Rude Intrusion is located on the next terrace up and right of the Holy Buttress climbs. It starts in the crack punctuated by a large intrusion. It is hard to miss as it looks like meteorite smashed into the rock face and stuck there.

To descend: from the large ledge, a couple 4th class moves leads to the top. Walk off to the left.


A standard rock rack to 3".
