Description 

This buttress is on the lower tier and is in the middle of 2 others buttresses.This buttress has 2 routes on it and this is the right route. Trail Legs climbs just off the arete using thin smears and the occasional sidepull to gain the 1st bolt. Bolt 2 is a little high, but from there the protection is good. Thin edges and pea-sized crystals with the odd patina edge thrown into the mix create a fun consistent climb. Watch the rice-y surface. It wasn't too bad, but there were sections.

Protection 

6 draws for protection on this route, and there are 2 bolts at the top for anchors. They don't have chains and are not rap anchors. Bring bail slings.
