If you walk straight out on the top of the buttress to its end, which faces Red River, you can't help but notice a squeeze chimney which marks the finish of this route. From the base of the cliff, scramble up third class to this chimney. Ooze up the chimney if you have large pro, or traverse right and friction to the top if you have no pro and no fear.

More of a scramble than climb. Couldn't resist climbing it while hiking with wife.

A GOOD SCRAMBLE, BUT WITH 3 ROOKIE TOP ROPERS, ALOT OF FUN FOR ALL OF US.

we didn't take the ramp we went up a 5.3/5.4 crack with a big tree growing in it. Maybe R rated for the last 20 feet if you don't have any big bros.
