A three-pitch climb that is located in the center of the main buttress. Actually you can start at any crack on the buttress and just climb your way up. Best to stay in the shade during summer due to large quantities of wasps buzzing the wall.

3 out of 5 stars If you like loose limestone, go for it

Lots of loose rock on the route. There's a 30 min. scramble up a steep scree slope to approach the climb. 3 pitches. A few different options for a first pitch; we've done what we think to be the "actual" first pitch and we've also done a different crack to the right by about 20 ft; the crack to the right was much better and had more solid rock; a large ledge allows you to traverse back on to the route. On the second pitch you have to climb a face with loose holds and very little protection, but you can avoid the toughest climbing by staying right. Be careful on pitch 2; we dislodged some huge boulders the other day, and more big, loose rock remains. Fun third pitch on good rock. Walkoff to the south.
