Look for large pillar on the bottom right ot the buttress. 3rd/4th to base of pillar on it's left side @ 300' and belay inside pillar. Climb chimney w/protection in small cracks til it pinches off to 6" crack and work your way outside onto face/edge of chimney. Top out inside chimney to sling belay on ledge. P2 goes up @ 10' then left on face and down to easier traversing; protect in incipient cracks and work your way to first major crack going up. P3 fires straight up thru thin cracks til just below the obvious dihedral above. Stay right in thin crack where Kor left a piton. This protects a bulge, go left to the base of the dihedral and belay. P4 goes up the dihedral and works right on incipient cracks til a ledge below a roof leads right to the corner. Go around the corner and set belay at the end of the ledge. P5 goes around the ledge and up a nice finger crack, kinda overhung with great pro and holds. Belay on top. Walk off north to the Hiker's Gulley. Bushwhack and hop down boulders til you find your pack!
