Approach


From the TH a 10 min walk will take you to the top of Bucks Bar Dome (BBD). From here, go to skiers left to the 2 sets of bolts on the V notch. Either rappel down the route or go for the class 3 downclimb past North Chimney. This climb is in the middle of the main area between Candy Corn and Fingerprint.

Route Description


A lieback route with a reachy midsection. Make an effort to save energy with jams and stems. The face climb to climbers right is Adhesion 5.10-11 depending on what variation is taken.

Essential Gear


All the routes I have seen are bolted for toproping. Back up your anchors as you feel is nessesary, the bolts that are there are typically in great condition. Rope, harness, belay device, helmet, and the typcical suspects for climbing. A small tarp is a good idea as it is quite dusty in the summer time. Speaking of summer, WATER, WATER, and WATER. It can get very hot in the summer later morning through early evening. Arrive early in summer to climb at the bearable times of the day. A first aid kit is a good idea as well as tape for hands for some crack climbs.
