Jackrabbit Buttress is the prominent feature on the north flank of the entrance to Juniper Canyon, directly across from Crimson Chrysalis on Cloud Tower. Several interesting grade II and III routes and a great deal of unrealized potential exist on Jackrabbit Buttress. This area isn't as well known as many others and consequently doesn't get the kind of traffic as many areas at the Red Rocks.
Approach the same as for Juniper Canyon, but instead of heading right towards Olive Oil on Rose Tower or left towards the Ginger Cracks / Cloud Tower Area, go straight to the base of this obvious buttress.
