Bryce starting the bouldery moves of Knobelty. Yo...

Description 

A fun slabby route with the crux down low but good climbing all the way to the top.


Location 

Knobelty is on the leftmost side of the rightmost buttress and follows the bolt line up and left on all face features. Stay left of the obvious right facing corner/crack system higher up.


Protection 

Draws to bolted anchor.

Fun climb. Probably the best route on the West Buttress. I thought the crux may have been near bolt 6 but I could definitely see the argument for the bottom being the crux.

9 bolts to a two-bolt anchor, I think.

Yeah, one of the better climbs here. For me, the crux is always moving past the 1st bolt, though the top will make you think, too!
