This area, while actually on Matternaught Peak, is best described seperately as the routes end a long ways below the summit. The buttress faces east with a slight tilt to the south, so it's in the sun for quite some time, 'til late afternoon. An ice axe is probably necessary for the descent until late season. We were able to rap over the last remaining snowpatch in late July '07.

Getting There 

From Taminah Lake, look north and locate a broad gully leading into a large cirque. Dem Bones buttress is the first prominent buttress on the west side of this gully. Allow about an hour from Taminah Lake.

This route offers excellent stone similar to Dem Bones, but with less sustained hard climbing.P1-Climb the thin crack splitting this clean face making use of abundant faceholds. When the crack turns burly about 50' up, make a cruxy (and rather spicy) traverse left to a blunt arete which is delicately climbed to a small ledge (alternative belay possible here). Crank up some short cracks into a cool stembox/chimney with a perfect finger crack in the back. Use all 70m to reach a spacious belay ledg...[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
