BETA PHOTO: Photo beta for "Left Brain Buttress."


This tall and committing buttress is home to possibly the best lines located on the second tier. It's a sunny and mostly solid section of wall to climb. However, take caution because the lines found at the "Left Brain Buttress are high ball problems with marginal landings. Don't let this stop you from climbing at this supper wall just make sure to be well spotted and well padded when climbing this section of the second tier.

Getting There 

The direction are the same as for locating "The Brothers Lookout." Once at the formation head up to the second tier via a gully that is best accessed from the east.

Nervous System V5-6 6C+ CO : Morrison/Evergreen : ... : Left Brain Buttress
Climb the short slab in the middle of the buttress onto an ever steeping wall that offers up a few nice deep crimps but the joy will end soon. After gaining a nice rail of crimps you must past your feet up onto the steep.... bare down.. and toss right handed into a nice jug that seems just almost out of reach. Finish by battling the ever steeping wall to the top. Walk off left or continue to the full top out....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
