My brother at the top of Black Buttress

Description 

Thin crimping leads to fun sandstone jugs on the easy ending. Mind your footwork on this one and be open to some side-to-side route finding to find the path of least resistance. Black Buttress is a nice, pure vertical testpiece for the grade.


Location 

Just left of the dihedral Mossy Gully forms.


Protection 

Webbing, trees. I recommend using the anchor setup on Black Buttress for it and Mossy Gully as less wear results on Black Buttress.

Black Buttress zig zags from crimp to crimp across the blank face, otherwise following the plumb line of the rope.
