Description 

Bill's Buttress is found about halfway along the East Rampart cliff face. The buttress contains long climbs like the challenging Cheatah and the easier Push-Me Pull-you. You'll need a 60m rope to top-rope these. Great climbs with great length can be found at Bill's Buttress.


Getting There 

Bill's Buttress is just east of the Leaning Tower Gully and Rainy Wednesday Tower. Hike up the CCC trail making a right at Pedestal Buttress. Swing around the top of D'Arcy's Buttress and head back west along the top of the cliff. After passing by Tombstone Wall and Leaning Tower head down the Leaning Tower Gully and walk about 75 feet east along the base of the wall.

JW leading "Breakfast of Champions" and JJ belays.  Don't look like no grovel fest to me judging by the look on Jerry's face.

Breakfast of Champions 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a  WI : Devil's Lake : ... : Bill's Buttress
Crack route around corner to right of Cheetah route. Very nice pure crack route for bottom half. Top half climbs through sustained and steep wall/corner/roof. Crux through wide section and small overhang in middle section.One can side step the crux of the middle section to the left but the crux section should not be missed....[more]   Browse More Classics in WI
