This runout face climb has a few interesting moves, but much of it involves climbing along a unaesthetic ramp.


two bolts and some small gear

Protected where you need it most, but still fairly runout. All the bolts have been replaced on this route.

This is the first route located right of Hot Buttered Rump. The G+V book shows this staying right of a right facing dihedral on the second half, that would be pretty contrived. Directly above the 2nd bolt I went stright up into the easy dihedral. Rap anchors are located on the left, exiting the dihedral before it peters out. A 70m will get you to a ledge where you can walk off to the right.
