Vicken Hillis on a fun unnamed v0 on the 'Buttermi...

Description 

A handful of boulders located in the center of the Buttermilks Main hillside.

For a creative challenge, try the classic and unique 'Buttermilk Stem' v1, then get on your butt and try the mind-boggling sit-start at v4. If you feel like your footwork could use some honing, stroll downhill to Rowell Rock and get your slab on some good highballs. Or for a good pump hop on and run some laps on the 'Pothole Traverse' v1 on the next boulder to the east.

Getting There 

Between the Cave Area and the Tut Boulder. (west of the Cave Area, east of the Tut Boulder)
