The double direct climbs the cracks on the two faces to the left of the Three Amigos flakes. Start up a zig-zaggy crack in the licheny face. At the top of the face cross the brushy ledge and climb the double cracks through a roof.


You encounter the Double Direct start on the trail just before Three Amigos. From the belay at the top you can walk back down on the trail.


You can slot almost anything from finger to hand size in the cracks along most of the route. A new leader could practice here with practically any gear he or she has.

As of 10/30/16, there were at least a couple loose blocks just before the bushy ledge halfway up the route.

What do we use to lower?
there doesn't seem to be bolt anchors mentioned in the description. are there any trees to anchor or rap down from?

Last time I was there you used trees. Very few routes at Buzzard's have bolt anchors. You generally build your own at the top.
