Ians Shadow climbs Three strikes Your Out


This is the third of the left facing corner liebacks on Battle of the Bulge Buttress. This route is directly above the Donnelly Canyon parking area at the point where Battle of the Bulge curves around into Donnelly Canyon.

If you've done Black Corner and Battle of the Bulge, the drill should be familiar. Boulder up to the bottom of the corner proper, place some gear as high as you can reach, and go for it. As with Black Corner, this route has rests.


1 1.75 friend, 2 0.5 camalots, 4 0.75 camalots, 4 #2 friends, 1 #1 camalot, 3 #2 camalots

This pitch protects well using just Camalots too. 4(.75), about 6-7(#1) and 1 or 2(#2). Very sustained. Good hand jams halfway lead to more thin hands/liebacking.

A very good pitch of nothing but liebacking that tests your endurance (remember not to put your gear too high).

10+ ???
You must be hella tough!! If the cave route is 10+, this is
definitely 11. Sweet line.

I think this is a fair bit easier than Battle of the Bulge. After the first 20 feet or so its pretty much all red camalots with some slightly larger jams for rests (you can slip a couple gold camalots in up higher). Really fun.
