Description:

A fun, moderate romp up the second buttress. Begin in the GIANT groove/corner on the left side of the buttress; climb it for 400 feet of 5.choss to steeper, cleaner rock. 2-3 leads of fun 5.7 face and crack (route-finding skills are handy) lead up to a belay below a large, long blackish overhang. Breach this feature on the right (crux), with steep climbing past many old fixed pins. Stretch the rope to the top.

3 out of 5 stars Where's The Pro?

The climbing is pretty fun. Nothing spectacular but I never saw an R in the guidebook to indicate that I'd be doing 50 ft. runouts over janky pins. Basically compined the last two pitches through the roof. That kind of sucked. I would say I might of been off route but the pins indicated in the topo were there so maybe it's just a junk show route.

What an amazing wall. Moderate climbing on stupendous rock. Best part of the route is up high. You spend at least two pitches staring up at the crux, which requires you to move around from under a huge roof. Highly recommended.

Pat and I did this in 2 pitches (about 1.5 hours) as part of a link-up with the Jackson-Johnson. A pretty fun route, but my least favorite overall of the 4 I've done on Hallet.
