|Test Pilots Buttress
Crux is getting past the one and only bolt. Stem the pillar, clip the bolt, and suction yourself onto the slab. Move left under the bolt and pull thin crimps to the rewarding ledge. take the right hand corner of the flake passing great gear the whole way up to the Weight and Balance Check anchors.
Climb the 5.8 crack, Weight and Balance Check P1 or the 5.7 corner just to the right. This route starts left of Weight and Balance Check in between the wall and the pillar.
1 bolt, Standard rack to 3"

This route is just ok. It really is just one move right at the bolt followed by some 5.6 climbing.

Agreed with Wes, a bit of a one move wonder. It is better done as one long pitch, combined with the 8 crack down below, this makes for a more worthwhile jaunt.

Y'all put this up in June? That's pretty amazing.
