Bastile Buttress, up and left from the Becky Route. Look for a line of bolts heading up toward two very long parallel crack systems that shoot to the top. Do four pitches of bolted face (third pitch is 5.11), that lead to the right hand parallel crack. Start up the right hand crack but after 60-80 feet traverse left on face past a bolt to the left hand parallel crack. Follow this crack system to the top (everything from finger crack to chimney) with nothing harder than 5.8. Fourteen pitches total. Descent can be made to the left with some short rappels from trees
