On "the Buttress"

Description 

This is a well bolted safe route by Needle standards. The route goes up a the rounded buttress.

Location 

This route is on the west side the formation. Look for a line of bolts going up the face. There is a seam at the bottom of the route that leads to face climbing. It is the right route of the two routes that are currently there.

Protection 

13 bolts to chains.

I'm pretty sure this is an old Archbold, Goldstone, Sutton, Piana, and Kertzman route. Almost positive...just don't have anything to back it up. And if the real Wilger was there...he was wearing a wig, as always.
