easier than the DNB, but with the same rating. Lots of 5.7. Mostly good pro. The chimney up high spits lotsa loose stuff; Wear your helmet . Descend via catwalk.

3 out of 5 stars Dirty Old North Buttress

First time up this one. Done it a few since. There's one layback pitch up there that has always felt 10b to me, before the chimney system and the "official" crux pitch. Be prepared for some dirt.
