|Astro Tower & Group Half Mt., Glacier Gorge, RMNP
The 400 foot high, square topped buttress right of Astro Tower has been named Astro Slab; aka Chronic Buttress. Endure a long slog through the windtimber before roping up below the left side of the buttress below an obvious, white rock scar.
P1. Climb a 5.9 thin crack just right of the scar. This is a nice pitch to nice ledge.
P2. The crux pitch: a distinctive, fish hook, thin crack, reminds one of a Lumpy, Book crack.
P3. Finish on a steep and blocky 5.8 rib to the summit.
This is on Chronic Buttress, Half Mt., RMNP.
