Another Becky route (5.8 A0 or 10c). Start at a small pine tree. Gear to 3". Traverse right to a bush in a crack. Head up brushy grainy cracks to the top of a pinnacle (or just below if using a 60m rope). Climb a thin face (10c) or aid (A0) up using 4 moderately spaced bolt hangers. Need to make a sketchy un-aided move to a 5th bolt then back to easier 5.8 face and final hand crack.
Three double rope rappels down the west face on new anchor stations into the gully left (west) of the buttress. Alternative: continue to climb for 2 pitches of 3rd/4th class to top of buttress and then rappel 30m and some down-climbing to reach the same
