Description 

This large and broad Buttress sits several hundred feet above the Bongeater Buttress. These routes historically been put up traditionally and tend to be multi-pitches. Excellent granite prevails, seemingly even up high on the crag.


Getting There 

The Ruckman Guide mentions the best approach to it as via skirting the Cresecent Crack buttress and then heading up and west. Another possibility may be to park at the parking lot on the north side of the mouth of LCC and then ascend up and past the Prowser and Bongeater Buttress until the base of the Memorial Day Buttress is reached. Whichever trail you choose, plan on a good little hike of about 45 minutes to get ot the base. It's worth it!

Dave Anderson Memorial Route 5.8+ 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c A2- PG13  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Memorial Day Buttress
Dave Anderson had scoped this line and envisioned all the pitches long before he and I went up there late in the Fall of 1997 to climb it. Dave was a true off-width master and had discovered many of the early gems in the Wasatch, including those on Memorial Day Buttress. We climbed two of the pitches that day and were a bit chased off due to impending darkness and windy cold weather. Nevertheless, we had a great adventure. The unfinished route (with the two pitches) made its way into the Ruckman...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
