  • Description 

    Find an obvious SE-facing slab with 3 bolts about 60' up and left of the Bitty Buttress Route--just left of Electricity. This short but interesting sport route is far more difficult than it looks. Stick clip the first bolt (the original first bolt is missing), and drift up 20' of blankish rock requiring some unusual maneuvering. For help, imagine trying to pull open the doors of an elevator while somehow making upward progress. A powerful move at the last bolt tops it off.


    3 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. Stick clip. 35'.
