This is the first major buttress at the RH end of The Pipes. Routes here are shorter, less serious and often sunnier. If you are not familiar with the Pipes then climbing a route on this buttress is less likely to end in an epic encounter.
Access to Northern Buttress is via the track from the LH end of the parking bay which crosses the Organ Pipes Track and continues on up the hill. Where the track meets the base of the buttress, go up R where the best routes are found on the sunnyside of the Lower Cliff. The LH side or darkside is more broken and is bounded on the L by Chockstone Gully, which leads up to the rear of the Notch.
