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 sunniest arete at the top of the Pleasure Pillar. Great exposure and movement.

Rowan's Arete 5.12b/c 7b+ 27 IX- 27 E6 6b  CO : Grand Junction area : ... : Cave Buttress
Climb the arete with sidepulls and crimps up to the top. There is a very nice rest at half height. It has great climbing the whole way to the top....[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?
