Description 

This is the buttress above the parking lot with the obvious dihedral. The dihedral is the infamous Bongeater and is an easy toprope to set up by scrambling up and right of the buttress. You might find a mountain goat guarding the chains.


Getting There 

The trail begins at the northeast corner of the parking lot.

This is the thin crack right up the prow of bongeater buttress with the bolt near the top. The route officially starts on the sloping ledge at the bottom of bongeater and goes around the corner and up the overhanging crack. The crack is expanding at the bottom and TCUs, nuts and aliens work well. The middle part eats nuts. The top part, past an old knifeblade driven up and in the crack takes a bit more creativity and is A2. A stretch from the last pin placement (short people may have to topstep)...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

This is a message to the group students at the Bongeater Buttress yesterday Jan 14 2012. (You borrowed my cam for the top of the route). When we were leaving I left my hiking poles under your stuff. Came back by there later in the day and they were gone. Would love to get them back if you see this post. My knees will thank you!
