Mother\'s Day Buttress
2nd Pitch- 60m- 5.7/ This pitch can be divided into two easier pitches by traversing out left from the belay. But that would miss the only good climbing of the day (albeit quite dirty and loose). Climb straight up into a right facing corner. There is a station towards the top of the corner if you want it, but I chose to run it out to the next station. Top out on the corner and move left into a huge steep groove. Pass two pitons in the groove and traverse right out onto the right face pass another piton and make a solid move up and over to a small ledge. Climb up and through another corner with piton to reach a comfortable chained station on the buttress ridge proper.
