Description 

This route climbs the left facing wall of the buttress. Start 20' left of Teardrop buttress and climb a clean slab past ledge, then step through the left side of the ceiling at mid-height. Continue up slab past broken ceilings to the top.

Bring extra webbing. Rappel from large tree at the top.

Protection 

Standard rack of cams and stoppers. Nothing fancy.

You can do some variations around this to change the grade a bit. The roof can be pulled at a crack on the right, and you can continue up to the arête a few different ways. Straight up looked grungy and poorer rock.
