This is an enjoyable route that becomes more interesting the higher you get. The crux move is about 20' below the anchor.


This is the favorite among most on this crag. This route is the center route of the three on the south face. The first bolt can easily be found to the right of "A Break in Security". Rap route by threading oversized metolious rap anchors.


9 bolts

A fun face climb with good protection. This is the center route of the three climbs on the south face of Bandit Buttress More fun than it looks from the ground. The anchor is shared with Cat Burglar.

In my opinion this is the best route at the crag, sustained at the grade with fun movement. The start might be 5.8.
