Description:

Very good quality for the area. Good exposure and exciting moves. This is on the last section of decent rock before it breaks up, or follow the ridge trail and then down the walk-off at the right of this climb. The climb starts as slab climbing with very little gear to the two underclinging flakes. Then follow the right facing flake up until it turns right and becomes an undercling. Follow the edge of the flake right and up. *The first 30 feet or so of easy slab has sparse protection.* A gear anchor can be built at the top-out or the large pine can be used.

Descent Options:

Rappel off the large pine with a 70m rope or use the walk-off to the south of the climb.

4 out of 5 stars Best climb

This is the best climb at Buzzard's Rock. The rest of the climbs are over rated compared to this one.
