An absolute beauty! The crack that splits the front of the Buttress. Climb the chimney then get set for the roof which is a ripper! You can jam yourself nicely while you feel around over the lip for holds. The Third pitch has some surprises for short climbers too! Should be on everyones hit list. VERY solid for the grade.
