Comments: Asshole? You ungrateful twat, I made you a map!

I'm sorry to hear that the top of both buttresses look similar and it threw you off. I'm impressed your persevered without realizing that the nature of the rock, the approach time and orientation of the crag were wrong. I imagine you had your phone with you to compare pics? Gotta wonder in which state you'd have ended up if you had been going by the guidebook...

Congrats though, you probably made a rare repeat of:

Comments: How the hell do you match pics of a granite buttress to a chunk of red quartzite?
You didn't find a catchment, you found a pipe bridge... Didn't you wonder why it only took you 10 minutes to get there instead of 35?

That would be how to get to Twilight
