The views from anywhere on the buttress are amazing. Here from the top of P3 on the Fin Arete, looking at the Thumb.

The Flakes.  <br />The route goes right at the first V and is a perfect handcrack up to the second V. <br />After that undercling lieback to the wide section, then more of the same to the top.

Comments: Hard and a bit out of character for the area with a couple sections of absolutely miserable feet (slab). I thought the crux was below the undercling section, a big deadpoint to a decent hold from a shitty crimp and bad feet. The moves are great the whole way, the line feels significantly harder than DOF or pitbulls...

Comments: BCC has been outfitted with cell relays (?) last year, I have yet to find a crag where I can't InstaBook spray about how much of a choss slayer I am. LCC is more hit or miss for me, line of sight to the valley usually works.

Comments: No, why would you post a pic of your bro's best profile on a white background? You could achieve the same effect by pointing the camera at a cotton ball and claim you were in the gnarliest whiteout. This isn't Instagram, at least put a rock in there.

Comments: The direct bolt line is much harder than heading right. Quarter pad crimps vs full pad jugs. Solid 11c... Good thing the crux is really short and spits you out on jugs.
Don't give in to the accepted idiotic practice of lowering from the quicklink on the last bolt. The last bit to the top may have been chossy for a few years after the route was put up but it's now clean and solid. Fire up the last bulge, pull the mantle and lower off the chains, standard draws will provide enough extension to pu... more >>

Comments: The extension is really good, steeper than the rest of the route with funky exposed moves and solid rock (even though it looks crumbly). Stopping halfway makes no sense when the top is safe, fun and the difficulty consistent.

Comments: The last 20' of the variation are worthy: tricky pumpy moves on good rock and an exciting shuffle along the arete on seemingly questionable stuff. The new bolt (5' above and left of the pin) means that you can finish on the anchor for Daisy without having to take a big fall on an old knifeblade. It's also a bit further to the left which lets you tackle the upper bulge straight on as opposed to escaping right.
I'd say 11+ for a continuous pumpy line with great movement and no excuses for... more >>
