New Variation on Valley View 5 Years, 2 Months ago  
Tobias and I joined "Lost 500" with "Valley View" to make "Lost View" on Bankhead Buttress. This cuts out the really lose and poor first two pitches of Valley View and replaces them with a much cleaner, sustained 5.9.

Climb the first pitch of Lost 500 to an anchor on a ledge. Traverse right on the ledge past one bolt and one piton to the top of the 2nd pitch of Valley View. Climb 3, long pitches to the top of Valley View (220 m, 5.9, 5.9, 5.9, 5.9). Rap Valley View. Topo's for either climb can be found on Tabvar.

Tobias put in a 3 pitch climb (complete with rap stations) that goes to the top of Bankhead buttress from the top of Valley View (5.10d/11a depending on feedback). The first pitch is a bit chossy, but it gets much better after that. This route could be an alternate descent route for routes further north (marked with a cairn on the ridge crest).
