Description 

scrappy 5 five pitch route, flaring aid cracks up high, a traverse down low.

We found lumber on top (welcome as we had an unplanned bivi), broken whiskey bottles and bent golf clubs. At the time (1993ish) we heard that heli tours deposit drunken golfers on top to hit a few balls. Sounds fun. We thought after walking around the entire butte that ours was likely the FA.
