Description:

This route follows a rough buttress, starting left of Black and Blue Velvet. Climb past two pitons; odd small arete above has ledge at bottom to prepare for crux move onto overhangs. Head for the roof, pull it and finish to anchors; or, go for second anchors above. Several no-hands rests. One of Pilot's "must do" favorites.

4 out of 5 stars i've done the

lower part before, but this was the 1st time I've led to the upper anchors. I place an orange tcu in the flake after the pins and the 1st bolt, before clipping the 2nd bolt. I clipped the 1st anchors with a long sling and then I placed a #1 Camalot on the upper horizontal before clipping the upper roof. I think 11b is being a little generous with this route...more like 10+ or maybe 11-.

5 out of 5 stars my favorite route at pilot mt hands down!!!

great route a must climb. if your not there yet just the crux move it self is worth the training to climb this one. when leading this route the first 2 petons are strong but old. after the first bolt you go through a fun crimpy section to a small ledge great rest. i place a size .75 or a 1 cam under the big flake before 2nd bolt. only down side of this climb is after the crux its only a 5.8 with big jugs.
