On the face, that is way right of the start to Cannonade's Buttress is a sort of left facing corner to start up on. Climb up this part (pin) until able to face climb and under cling left to stem across (crux) to an excellent and short, finger crack (pin). Climb crack to belay ledge (40ft). Traverse left and up past small old tree and continue up on blocks of rock to join Cannonade Buttress start midway up. Second pitch is a 'take it very seriously' area, hence the name.


Left face of Cannonade Buttress


stoppers and medium trad rack up to #3 cam or hex equivalent. Rappel off slung horn or continue up Cannonade Buttress.
