|South Face Lower Buttress
|Voluntary Closure Every June and Seasonal Peregrine Closures MORE INFO >>>|
A tough for what the book calls 5.6 move gets you off the ground. Followed by straightforward crack and face work. There is a bit of loose rock up top, including a big flake that looks appealing to access the anchors. A good route if you have no time after arriving late, or after you are done with something bigger.
Left of the three sport routes including Tintin Does Donuts, is a left facing crack, followed by another crack and immediately by a third. This climbs the third crack.
Standard rack, although cams seemed helpful as the crack was flared. Anchors are on top and right of the climb, on the ledge right of the chimney.

A little dirty toward the top.
