BETA PHOTO: On the Bus.

Description 

Please see the photograph of my topo for better beta. This is a very sustained, low angle, runout climb. Pretty darn classic, but scary for mortals.


Location 

This is a direct line up the V-shaped buttress on the left side of Helen's.


Protection 

Only three bolt on pitch one, some 5.9X friction above the routes second bolt. Don't know if this route got retro-changed or not. I consider it a bit gnarlier than Buffalo Soldier.
