Description 

Fifi Buttress is the large formation directly to the west of the leaning tower. It is home to a multitude of free and aid routes from seven to ten pitches in lenght. There are even some one to two pitch free routes at the base.


In the late fall and winter time this area gets all day shade. For a good part of the year it gets afternoon sun around 1:30 or 2pm similar to the Leaning Tower

Getting There 

Park in the Bridalveil Falls parking lot. Hike out from the south side of the lot. (To the right of the bathrooms). Head into the trees staying right/west of the talus feild. You should pick up a climber trail fairly quickly. Follow this as it gains elevation and eventually joins with a stream bed. Follow the stream bed until you see a large boulder on the left. Take the right side of the stream bed up a hill and then cut back across the drainage to the base of the wall. There is a large ramp, mostly 3rd class that cuts across the wall. This will lead to The Vortex, Romuland Freebird, Final Frontier and other routes.

Approach takes about 45 mintues.

Voyager 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- 24 E4 6a  CA : Yosemite National Park : ... : Fifi Buttress
Voyager is a fantastic route. Established in 2013, it offers sustained climbing on surprisingly clean and solid rock. Each pitch is high-quality, featuring numerous stem corners and hand cracks. Almost all of the belays are at comfortable ledges and the route catches shade until around 1-2pm (May). Great route for a warm day in a secluded spot. P1: Blocky bolt-protected climbing leads to a long clean stretch of fingers in a corner. Stemming and jamming segues into fun face climbing on edges an...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
