Description 

This area lies between Yellow Lichen Buttress and Saturday Buttress and contains several dirty routes in the 5.8-5.9, all of which according to Mike Farris are "not worth doing".

Getting There 

From the parking lot off Rock County 8 take the paved bike and pedestrian path until the cliff line is clearly visible. Take the approach trail that cuts a right angle with the paved trail through the grass to the base of Saturday Buttress and continue to the left to the base of this buttress.

The guidebook says "dirty and hardly worth doing" before each of these routes, but I think otherwise. If you are looking for moderate trad leads this place has 5 lines!
