BETA PHOTO: The routes on the Triple Buttress. A Runout Ridge...


Located on the Triple Slab Buttress. This is the second major formation right of Three Fingers Canyon. Drive 6.1 miles from I-70 on the main dirt road, and then turn right onto the high clearance road that leads to Three Finger canyon. After 1.7 miles turn right and park. Directly in front is the Triple Slab Buttress, and Jack Russell climbs the central slab. See Photo, route B.

P1) Climb directly up the central pillar structure via a shallow groove with a hairline crack. Some cam placements at 100'. 180' 5.6 R. Bolt belay.
P2) Scramble 70' into a gully/groove on the left. From here, move out right onto open slab and take a slightly diagonal line over a prominent pillar to a bolt belay. 200' 5.5
P3) Straight up the nice open slab to bolt belay 5.6
P4) From here, 4th class left up the slab left of a large cleft to the summit and a register. 400'

Descend the route. See photo route B.........
