BETA PHOTO: The three routes currently at the East Buttress, d...


The East Buttress is the large crag East and a bit above The Lair. It has prominent South and West faces with routes on both. The South face is split by a large ledge system that bisects the face and is host to a long trad dihedral route. This route appears to be moderate and should take excellent gear. Lots of potential for more routes above and below the ledge. The West face is composed of several plates that could hold quite number of high quality routes. Presently three routes have been established. The West face gets excellent sun, and the rock quality overall appears to be very good.

Getting There 

Approach via the trail to The Lair. Then either hike around the crag to the East to approach South face climbs off the ledge or use one of the access routes at The Lair to reach the West face. These routes both converge at a rappel station that drops one down to the base of The Lair.

Neda, whose full name is Neda and The Time of Light, was named for Neda Agha-Soltan a new voice for freedom and democracy in Iran.

To the repressive forces in Iran we would say this: murder of the innocent, your own brothers and sisters, shows to the world that your time is drawing to a close and the clock is ticking....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
