Ben Hoiness and Brooks Munyer found a fine four-pitch line on a possibly unclimbed granite buttress above Hairpin Lake in the Hell Roaring Plateau area of the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness Area. Classy Girls (5.11a/b) takes a line of cracks up the left side of the buttress, with mostly good rock. The wall appears to hold potential for other difficult routes.
