Melungian is on the left.


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.


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


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.
