Melungian is on the left.

Description 

Long slab route that has some thin spots but is pretty fun. Good place to practice leads. I'm not sure about 5.8 but that's what it's currently rated at.

Location 

South of the first down climb area and just to the right of Ass Cannibal

Protection 

7 bolts and a few good places to place pro. #1 cam or a pink Tricam works well.

I think this is one of the best slab routes at Buzzard's. Unlike most of the others it has reasonably sustained climbing at a constant level, instead of just a few moves interspersed with long easy stretches.

Sustained and slabby. Great route. Be careful not to follow the weakness too far to the right...unless you have gear.

Great route. A large tree near the base of the climb broke midway up the trunk and fell over (sometime before August 2014). Doesn't affect the route but makes a fall near the start (or a fall by the belayer) a potential problem.
