Climb the face through 3 bolts to a rest ledge, and get ready! Figure out the moves past the overlap, hang on, fire to the arÍte, and go to the top of the buttress! This is a wild ride. It has awesome holds in a supreme setting. Get on it!

A TR can be set up from Pika on the right.

Thanks to Kirk for finding the line and giving me the opportunity to get the FA. I will always remember this one.


It is on the far right side of the Jabba Buttress, between Uncle Puffy and Pika.


11 bolts to a two bolt anchor with ring and chain.

I would not recommend this route due to the runout up top. If there was another bolt at the finish, I would give this three and a half stars. I got on it with a couple different partners, and none off them liked the runout. They all thought it was silly and out off character with the rest of the super closely bolted route. Still fun, and you could alway put a long sling on the last bolt like I did when I was working the moves with Kirk. Very pretty route with great position.

Red Ballnuts might just be perfect for the spicy .11 runout after the crux. Next time I get on Gettysburg, I'll try 'em out and report back.
