Description 

There are two ways to start. The east side start climbs an overhanging hand crack (5.9) on the north end of the spire. The West side start climbs a steep slab (5.8). Both starts end on top of a large flake on the west side. From here climb the face, clipping a drilled angle, then move around to the north side and finish up on the east side of the summit.

Rappel off two drilled angles.


Location 

Trudy Buns is a 50 ft spire located in the Icebreaker area on the west side of the highway. To avoid Acoma land, approach from the Sandstone Bluffs Overlook and descend off the west side of the mesa, then walk around to the south then east past the Icebreaker buttress.


Protection 

Mostly fixed. The east side crack will require a cam or two.
