L-Buttress is located in one of the more secluded locations in Blue Mounds, the Mini Fortress Area. Some of the characteristics of this piece of rock include shade, lack of other users, good top/bottom access, and a mostly flat and clean ground at the base. It contains some fun climbs for the intermediate climber.

Getting There 

Coming from the Prairie Walls cliff line, stick to the trail going north for about a quarter mile (guess.) The woods will open up for a bit (First Fortress). After you get back into the woods again, you're there.

Loose Rock goes up the face approximately ten feet to the climber's right of Hammer. Mantle your way up onto the good ledge about ten feet off the ground and climb the rest of the way on consistent and interesting 5.8 climbing.A bit of loose stuff the name refers to is near the top, but it didn't come off for me and is probably avoidable. Be careful of what you're cranking on as you get higher, but this route is still worth doing....[more]   Browse More Classics in MN
