βeta: One of those routes that has the perfect hold exactly where you're looking for it, every move, and the perfect gear placement at every rest. Go left at the top for variation and a really nice final move.

βeta: Please keep on walking by this great little buttress & undergrading all the routes in the guidebooks then it will remain a great place to climb away from the crowds in the Great Slab area.
