An agreeable jaunt up the west side of The Appendage on the short faces between several narrow ledges.

This line is good for beginning leaders; the three bolts protect the harder bits well and the climbing is straightforward but rewarding.


The left-most, bolted line on The Appendage proper; starts just east of the trees that are west of the formation.

(There is another 3-bolt route (Butterface) which is a bit uphill on the next slabby face—it should be obvious that it is harder than 5.4.)


3 bolts, chain anchors. The chains are reachable via an easy scramble to the left.

Nothing super fantastic here, but it's entertaining climbing and the rock is solid. The first couple times I climbed this route, the third bolt was missing. It's back now.

Pretty fun little climb. Maybe I'm a wuss, but 5.6 seems a fairer rating to me. Maybe not.

I think some parts broke off. I climbed it two years ago and it was a solid < 5.5. Now it seems like some hands and feet are missing. There are obvious scars.

Agreed it should be a 5.6, still a fun climb with easy bulges.
