I read somewhere (over an incredible amount of brew) that there is a nailing route on Westwind buttress. Does anybody want to drop beta, or no anyone that knows anything about it.

peace out biaches,

Is this what you are looking for? Hope this helps.

Empty Plate - III 5.9+, A2

Climb the first two pitches of Standard Thumb. Then from the belay, head up and left onto West Wind Buttress East Face out of the gully. Some cool nailing
Details: After climbing the first two pitches of Standard Thumb, move out of the gully onto West Wind Buttress. Climb past 3 bolts to a seam crack where nailing may be necessary. Some fixed heads left in place. Eventually the angles lessens and a ledge with two bolts is reached.
Pitch #4 ascends a diagonalling crack to a step face peppered with chicken heads.
Pitch # 5 eventually runs out of Chicken heads, and the route was abandoned 25 feet from the top.

Stroker,
Let me know if you do it...the last pitch is steeper and grittier than hoped for, but the lower pitches are good eatin' if you like it nailin'
