Description:

Short bolted lead to the left of the Y-Crack. Follow bolts over slippery bulges. About eight feet off the ground, you are faced with the bulge and the "butthole." There is an easier variation to the right, or a more difficult variation goes up and over the bulge.

4 out of 5 stars I found the "Butthole"

This was one of my first lead climbs, I lead it again and didn't remember how to get up at first. There are a couple of variations for sure. Once I figured out you need to finger the butthole to get up to the second bolt. After leading, I toproped it twice to get it smoothly. Large rocks for easy natural anchor or you can build gear anchor.
