|Battle of the Bulge Buttress
The majority of this route is handcrack. There are a couple of wider pods and one section of tight-hands. Higher up there is a smaller crack out to the left that can be used. Good route, lots of fun.
Starts on the left side of the buttress. Route begins on the face to the right of Elbow Vices, down near Think Pink.
Green to Gold Camalots should do it. A #3 Camalot could be nice to protect a wide pod higher up.

Agreed. This is mostly hands, but the pods make this climb a challenge. The escaping the final pod involves some tenuous face moves off to the left before pulling back right.

Called 10+ in the book, climbs more like 10-. Great route and good for warmup too. Mostly #2s with pods and good options for feet if you don't want to jam it straight up the whole way.

easier than elbow vices to the left. good warmup. You can lower with a 60m, so definitely not 120 feet long.
