Description 

CBU is a nice natural line that runs the right edge of the slab, right of C'est Le Pied.

From the belay stance, head out on a shallow ledge and up the slab looking for gear near the arete. Mid-point anchors/belay are available and recommended as the pitch above has a bunch of rope drag.

P2 heads up the slab, into a right-facing corner to the roof. Trend right under the roof on the awesome finger crack to the end where you find a large horn. Turn the mild overhang left of the horn, and pull onto the slab above, heading up to a 2-bolt anchor. The variation "Say No to Bolts" heads up through an overhanging crack, mid-way on the overhanging roof.


Location 

Begin on the lower right edge of the West Wall.


Protection 

Standard trad rack with a second set of finger-sized cams (#0.4-#1). There are 2-bolt stations mid-way and on top.
