This is the large face that is below the majority of the Durrance Approach. Numerous trad lines and even a few short sport routes can be found.

Getting There 

Take the asphalt trail out of the parking lot. Stay right at the Y and pass the West Face boulder field. A few feet further brings you to a large interpretive sign on the left. The buttress directly in front of you is your destination.
