Follow path up until you see the ladder about 50 meters away. up to your right will be a a crack/slab climb.

  1. Follow this crack on slopery and ledgy holds until topout.

  2. Pitch two starts about 100 meters righ of pitch 1's topout. It is a slab climb with a crack on your left, good for placing gear. Slightly mossy and wet during the winter. Topout onto a large ledge.

  3. Pitch up right following crimpy holds with good friction. Amazing exposure further up on the pitch with great gear (when repitching look for broken rock, courtesy of terrible anchor).

  4. Pitch four starts five meter right. First 30 meters resembles a scramble but the last 20 is beautiful climbing up a chimney-like crack. The moves are... unique. DO NOT TRUST WEDGED BOULDERS!!

  5. Scramble out on a steep grassy incline. More cautious climbers may want to pitch this. All in all, great climb with good gear.

A fantastic route, highly recomended. It is in the shade for much of the day, great summer climbing.

Start: At an obvious crack on the left hand side of Block Buttress.

  1. 20m (15) Climb the crack to an easy and obvious traverse. Follow the traverse right and climb up to a bolted stance.

  2. 35m (15) Climb up and left onto a shattered shelf. Follow the shelf to the left and where it runs out do a scary pull over (very exposed) and continue up to a ledge on the right. (Pitch could be broken here.) Climb the undercut corner/crack at the base of the ledge, then go diagonally up and left across a face split by horizontal rails. At the left side of the face continue straight up the arete to a good ledge above and to the right. This is at the right hand base of the blocky pyramid that provides the key to this route.

  3. 20m (8) Scramble up and to the left to the top of the blocky pyramid.

  4. 15m (15) Climb up into the recess on the right, reach high for an excellent rail and move acros the corner onto the face on the left, directly above the belayer. Continue straight up a vague recess to a narrow ledge under another large roof.

  5. 35m (15) Traverse easily to the right for 6 or 7m, then climb up to a rail beneath a roof and traverse back left for 3 or 4m to bypass the overhangs. Climb straight to the top. There is a great tree to use as an anchor.
