View of the intimidating crux pitch.  Belayer is visible in lower right corner.  After climbing the long corner, you exit right at the roof - airy, exciting, but not a technically difficult finish. <br /> <br />I did the entire corner and exit move in one pitch and belayed right on the prow.  An awesome, comfortable stance with great gear AND great views.  Also makes for a long (140 feet) and demanding pitch :)

Climbs better than it looks :)  The climbs all start from the bushy ledge that slopes up from the center of the wall.

Historic sign from the 1930's.  It has since been replaced with an updated version, but the logo and message are the same (except 'Stranger' has been replaced with 'Partner')

June 2006 - this little sign off the service road marks the approach trail down to the buttress.  We left our packs here (hang them!)

Begin the approach by walking south on the service road from the tram.  It is about a 1.5 mile walk (past 2 switchbacks) to the approach trail.  It takes about 30 minutes to get to the approach trail, and then another 20 to the base of the buttress.  It's all downhill at least!

A party is visible on the 2nd pitch.  The first pitch begins below the obvious tree and goes up the left corner system to the top of the huge big block.  A dirty, walkable ledge system takes you to the base of the tower where the climber in blue is just barely visible.  Gain this tower by climbing the left corner, until it is possible to traverse out right onto the block and face climb to its top.

The stance from which you can place a (very) small nut at the base of the crack.  You then pull into a layback and gun for the big rest halfway up the crack.

Nice shot of the whole climb.  Start off the block where the belayer is sitting.  Some gear (including some fiddly gear) gets you to the well protected bolted face climbing.

Grain Surgery starts in the middle (widest) crack and continues up that until it runs out.  It then heads out past two bolts on the face... with some runout 5.9/5.10a climbing to the top.  Be solid at the grade!
