Description:

Some think this is the best route in the Platte. Start on the 200 foot SE face of the buttress. Two unbelievable pitches. P1) Follow a thin crack to an exciting leftward traverse to an RP seam. Climb the seam, then up through a bulge with pins (11d). The traverse can supposidely be done at a higher horizontal to skip the RP seam. P2) Incredible pitch. Climb the difficult thin crack to a pin. Face climb around the crack (11c/d), to a stance with a bolt. Finish with a steep slanting thin hands crack.
