Description:

A beautiful climb that ascends the east face of Ginger Buttress, it tops out on the peak of the buttress, just above the summit of Ginger Cracks. Descend via Ginger Cracks. Can combine pitch 2 and 3 (very short) with a 60m rope for a long pitch to reach the huge ledge before the roof pitch. Main cruxes are at the end of p1 and 3/4 up on p2. 10c/d is fair.

4 out of 5 stars Fun route

Good climbing on good rock. Definitely NOT 10d. Handren calls it 10b and that's maybe a little generous but it's a fun climb. Make sure to do the last pitch - fun slab with great position and then rap the back side to Power Failure. Mostly sport but a few pieces come in handy here and there - kinda' heady without anything but draws.

3 out of 5 stars Great climb, probably 5.10 not 10d

I climbed this route as part one of a link-up day. The second climb was the classic crimpson chrysalis.
This route climbs really fast and has an easy rappell descent.

4 out of 5 stars Interesting

The climbing has several stellar moments but for the most part it's fun climbing with a few unpleasant sections. I found the first pitch heady because of the whole tree climbing thing and some junky rock but other than that the climbing was very enjoyable. I thought this was easier than DOWT which is 10a. Not even close to 10d.

5 out of 5 stars Fun route!

This isn't 10d. Handren's book says 10b. I'd say that's fair. Super fun climbing. We rappelled before the last pitch.
