This is a variation that attacks the inviting looking seem/fin overhang at the buttress' mid height. Start on Legion of Decency. Climb to a spike/jug just before the "death flake." Place a .75 or equivalent cam and move left at a small roof with a side-pull and undercling. Climb on the arete and face just left of the crack to situate yourself beneath the imposing, overhanging, seam/fin. Place tiny cams and a tiny offset nut, heel hook, toe hook, knee scum, micro crimp underclang your way to finger locks and jugs of glory!


Right side of the Bent Buttress at the Parking Lot Buttress. Finish up Legion of Decency or 5 Easy Pieces. 2 bolted rappels climber's left of top out.


Single rack to hands. Doubles in the tiny tiny cams, i place a small offset in the crux, medium nut for top out
