Description 

This is the leftmost bolted route on the MBA Buttress. Two bolts on a short slab lead to ledges at the base of an arete. The crux comes immediately off the ledge past a couple of overlaps. Cool moves finish on up the left side of the arete to the anchors.

Protection 

Six bolts to a two bolt anchor with rings.

Fun little route. If you're climbing the 'Spike' you should do this route as well. It's a bit more interesting if you stay on the arete although that might nudge the grade a little.
