|Keough Memorial Buttress S
Start up an finger crack and clip 2 bolts, then traverse right across a crack then continue up the arete. Stay on the left side of the arete because around the right side is a little chossy.
Far right side of the Right Recess.
7 bolts to open shuts. The book says the first 3 bolts are missing hangers, but all the bolts are good. You could put some gear in if you want but there is no need.

fun climb. didn't seem like it gets to much traffic. sweet hand crack after the 1st bolt as well as the fun crack traverse to the arete. climbing got exciting on the arete as it started raining and the arete is somewhat slabby. great 5.8 climb with an easy scramble up n down.
