Rockfax Description
The long rising traverse of the Great Buttress is a very sustained, high quality climb. Start as for DDT.
1) 5c, 30m. Follow the first pitch of DDT for 10m then traverse right to meet Tumbleweed Connection at its small roof. Follow Tumbleweed Connection to the belay at the top of its first pitch.
2) 5c, 30m. Move down and then traverse right under a small overhang until a move up allows more moves rightwards to and up a rampline (shared with Footless Crow). At its end, head down right to a wall/slab on Bitter Oasis and climb this to a stance.
3) 5c, 20m. Move up left as for Bitter Oasis and then right to a flake-crack. Climb the flake-crack past a bulge to a corner. Follow the corner and wall above it to the top. © Rockfax
