This Crag has some of the best slab climbing you will find anywhere. Though they can be runout in places, if you have the fortitude you will not be dissapointed.

Getting There 

You can approach this buttress from either Three Fingers Canyon or Uneva Canyon. Maybe pick Three Fingers for Tsunami left and Uneva for Surfing the Swell right.
About 40mins hike both ways.
