Description 

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.

Climbing Season

For the Blue Mounds State Park (Luverne) area.

Up the crack on the south side of L-Buttress. Solid pro for leading. The crux is the last ten feet to the top out. Another fun Blue Mounds crack that sees very little traffic....[more]   Browse More Classics in MN
