BETA PHOTO: Trojan Bunny Buttress.


This is a good sport route route with decently sustained, steep slabbing. This is on the same rock as Trojan Bunny Buttress but a bit further right. It faces West. You must cross the creek to get to the rock which is easier to do later in the summer. In the picture here, it goes approximately to the "15."

It seems the route could be listed under Trojan Bunny Buttress, but both Rolofson & Hubbel list it under a separate rock called Leather Face.

You may find 2 cruxes between the 3rd & 4th bolts and at the 5th bolts. The harder crux seemed at the 5th bolt. We found it best to go right to seam here. There is a spot for a small cam near the top. It gets 2 of 5 stars from Rolofson, 3 of 5 stars from Hubbel. It is slightly higher quality than Alley Cat Street. 1.91 stars here :) 110 feet. 'Ave fun.


7 bolts plus a possible small cam, 2 bolt anchor.

Some really good climbing on this one, but expect difficult, improbable moves well above the bolts.
