Balance your way up the left facing corner using all the tricks in your bag - stems, laybacks, jams and hip scums - until you are under the roof and at the fixed slings. For additional fun try the traverse over to the anchors on the right...


Left side of the Rico Suave buttress.


Trad gear. Fixed nuts/slings at the top for anchors.

Climbed on 7/4/14. Great route, good gear, lots of spiders. Anchor consisted of 3 rusted nuts and some rotten slings. Added a nut and left some red 7 mill cord with a quick link. Didnt have a knife to remove the old slings. Needs to be cleaned up.
