This Olevsky route climbs the first of the three large towering buttresses. If you look from the road, the butresses (barely separated) will appear as "Full Metal Jockstrap", "Thousand Pints of Light," and "leopard Skin." The first pitch of the lockstrap climbs a right facing dihedral. Don't get on this, if you don't like runouts. Damn fun route.

Spent three straight weekends with Carsten from Germany, this was one of them. I took a nasty lead fall on Battle of Wills later in the day and ripped one of his brand new 8.1mm Iceline Beals....all this after he bought them because he saw me using them, not realizing I was really just doing it to get new ice ropes next season. Oh well. Super day otherwise, cloud cover made it perfect, tagged Stepping Out's 4 pitches as well.
