Burning Buttress Rock Climbing
Jessica Hoffmann pluggin'& chuggin"
Easy bolted lines are the only thing in short supply here. From difficult, slabby sport lines to corners and roofs, to beautiful plumbline cracks- Burning Buttress has something for almost everyone. Known for its concentration of quality 5.10 gear lines foremost, but also a good destination for the >5.12 sport climber.
From The Brain, head upstream keeping the rock to your left. Five minutes you'll see a clearing with stellar cracks in the wall. This is Burning Buttress.

In the heat of the summer, this area stays in the shade until about noon.

This is a strange description for this area; just dwelling on the heat and winter-ness of this crag. For what it's worth, I climb here not infrequently in the summer; as Jeremy says above, the area around Burning Calves is in complete shad ein the morning, and gets ample tree shade even after that. Around the corner, the Steve Martin's Face/Chorus Line area gets afternoon shade. Will to Power and Sportster do get sun pretty much all day, though.
