Pitch 1 - Begin in a crack in the black rock. Climb this for one long or two short pitches up to a good ledge beneath a white slab.
pitch 2 - Climb the face to a belay on the left.
Pitch 3-5. Mostly 4th class to the summit. Walk right to a dead pine tree.
This route is located on the left side of the Buttress. Look for varnish with two hand cracks. Make a series of rappels to the right of the route off a dead pine tree with two ropes down "Under Raps".
Gear to 3" and two ropes for rappel.

Nice route. Easy - but a great choice for a first multipitch or just a fun day out.
The second rap station looked a bit scary. I actually skipped this station by rapping off the end of the ropes (60m) on the first rappel. They ended about 15' above the big ledge & I downclimbed a 5.0 flake - easy & quick, but not really recommended.
