This is the triangular buttress left of Cloud Tower. It does not really have a distictive summit but merges into the main wall above.
Follow the Approach most of the way to Cloud Tower. Before you get on the approach ramp that swings right, you will see the Ginger Buttress above you at the top of an alcove. Stay on the trail as long as possible to avoid nasty bushwhacking. At the last moment, cut left under the buttress and head up the drainage of the alcove to the base of Ginger Buttress.

And hope that somebody will fill in the rest.The route starts halfway between Ginger Cracks and Power Failure. Find the only big tree in sight and scurry...[more] Browse More Classics in NV
