My first barefoot ascent in '71
D'Arcy's Buttress is a shorter wall (maybe 40 feet high) that sees a lot of climbing due the interesting routes and easy access. Notable climbs here include the easily spotted Ship's Prow (5.6), the dyno-move route Death Leap 2000 (5.10b), and Sometime Crack (5.10a). There are also some bouldering routes on the north side of D'Arcy's Buttress. You are likely to find D'Arcy's Buttress full by 9:30 on any summer weekend.
To get to D'Arcy's Buttress take the CCC Trail, turning left when you reach The Monster. When you reach Pedestal Buttress turn right and walk about 50 feet. D'Arcy's Buttress will be on your left.
