Description:

Very fun route that starts just to the right of Four Kids,on the upper right side of the buttress.It starts a little up hill on golden rock and diagnals left and up to first bolt.Then pull up onto the sick ,slopey ledge,reach up for the lip and clip another bolt.Then step out left and pull up above the Fat Lip overhang.The route then becomes a cool slab friction,face climb ,with lots of edges,crimps,pockets,and several rest ledges.

Descent Options:

climb off top 4th class to walk off.belay partner up and walk off.

4 out of 5 stars Fat Lip

Another good new moderate on Jane's Buttress. Cruxy low for a couple bolts then nice slab climbing above. The route is tough to clean on rappel (rope shred may occur) so I recommend having a second clean the draws on TR and then rappeling straight to the ground under the anchor.

5 out of 5 stars FA on Fat Lip

At the start stay off the broken loose rock to the left.You can climb up directly from under the first bolt or slightly to the right.Very fun unique start,and an awesome slab above the Fat Lip.
