Jim on one of his climbs.

Description 

Only gets sun in the morning to about 12ish. Only a few routes here, but the quality of them is good. The rock here is featured and of good sorts.


Getting There 

Approach the same as for Lower Mother's. Once you reach Lower Mother's take a right and hike up the hill. Best to stay close to the wall on a faded trail until it becomes to vegetated at which time you angle right.

The Main Vein 5.11 6c+ 23 VIII- E4 5c  CO : Grand Junction area : ... : Cave Buttress
This climb follows a long, vertical vein of quartz for two long pitches. You end up on top of Rowan's Arete.Pitch 1: (5.11) Leave everything bigger than a #0.75 with your partner, but bring a #4. Start on some blocky terrain and place a few pieces until you reach the first bolt which is about 30 feet up. From here, used mixed gear and bolts to get to the base of the 4' roof. The next 20 feet is the meat of the route, and how you do it will be height dependent. Move over...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO

This guy Jim Beyer rope soloed a bunch of routes in this Mother Buttress area in 2007...might be some of his? With him one day I repeated about four of his routes that seemed around 5.11. He wanted to relead them with a belayer. He pointed out a few more he had done. I know he was also active with single pitch climbs further down the canyon on a previously unclimbed crag. Do not know if he ever wrote up any of these climbs?
