Using the same trail, access similarly narrow buttress as “Rest and Digest” leading up similarly good quality rock and easy climbing with ample protection. The trick is not to disturb the bees that inhabit the massive nest visible from the west and south on the trail into Shadow Buttresses. Check on them carefully during warm weather, but they seem absent in cooler times!


Next buttress to the right (west) of Rest and Digest.


Trad, small to medium cams. Watch the bees!

As far as I could tell there are not anchors for this climb. You can however build a natural anchor at the top, belay your partner up, and then do an easy down climb to get back to the "lunch slab".
