Description 

To the right of the final ladder (a physical, wooden ladder) lie a few slabs with a few climbs, mostly good as top rope.

Getting There 

From the ladder: bushwhack about 200' to some short vertical handcracks. Another 50' or so there are two buttresses. The climb between the two is 4th class, and can be used as a descent (although heading over towards the summit and descending the ladder is probably best.

From the summit: head towards the ladder, but right before the trail starts heading downhill look for a herd path to the left. The path goes in, jots rights, and then heads along the edge of the cliff. When you get to the cliffs, the first one (the highest) is Left Buttress, and the lower one is Right Buttress.
