Southwest Buttress of Angles Landing Date Climbed: Aug 30, 2014
With Steph. Maybe the third ascent, who knows. It is chossy and the first pitch needs to have a death block/chock stone cleaned off, but the 2nd pitch is worth this route getting some work and traffic. Nice off width, not near as sustained as Kung Fu's 2nd pitch, but short section will have you inching up. Third pitch has cool roof pull, but needs a lot of fragile rock cleaning as well. Rap the route with a 70m except for he last pitch, just follow the fall line down to a slung block for the final rap. Called South Face in Bryan's book and Southeast Buttress on Mountain Project. It is in fact the same route, but is the southwest buttress.
