Description 

This has a bunch of the original bolted routes in this section. There are some nice moderate sport and trad lines here. It has really great rock. The climbing is a lot of fun.


Getting There 

This area is just left of the Table Top area. From the main trail, keep walking west until the cliffs trail away and you can walk to the top. The cliffs start up again; this is the Industrial Buttress.

Industrial Disease aka Dead Moonies Don't Sell Flowers 5.11c 6c+ 24 VIII- E4 6a  CO : Golden : ... : Industrial Buttress
This is a totally rad climb. It follows a thin seam up a smooth slabby face for the first half, and then continues up a vertical to overhanging jug haul for the second half. The crux is a techinical move on the lower slab. The route lies just to the left of a gully that leads to the top of the cliffs.Eds. According to richard berk, this was once known as Dead Moonies Don't Sell Flowers....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
