Tony Tennessee at the crux move.

Description 

A Stoney classic - one of it's best TRs.

Up the starting slab to a safe-haven ledge where some people seem to bivouac. Swing around onto the thin face to the nutcracker move (crux) then up the the pin-scarred crack which is a great way to finish.

Location 

Left side of the buttress.

Protection 

TR - boulder and 3 bolts.

Climbed it today using a Microtraxion for self belay while my 12 year old son practiced jugging right next to me. Great anchors and easy access. Fun climb.
