A stout route (5.9+ going on 5.10c) you'll probably hate until it's over then you'll be estatic. Start in the corner on the right side of the Flying Buttress where Coke Bottle route starts. Pitch 1) Climb up about ten feet of Coke Bottle, then move right onto a fat flake. Continue up to a pair of cracks, go up, then into the left layback. At the top, move back right to an easier crack. Up this to the second of two right-trending cracks. Climb that to a bottomed crack, go up that right to a horizontal. Traverse right in the horizontal, then up a vertical crack to reach the belay on Froggy Bottom Ledge. or traverse left onto improbable face to juggs at the notch below the crack on pitch 2. Pitch 2) Straight up hand crack. Difficulty will depend largely on hand size and the temperature. May be greasy in hot weather. Incredible, clean jamming on this pitch. Go to a ledge at the bottom of a ramp. Scramble up the ramp to the left to get to the raps or the walk down.
