The buttress that lies above and between the Watchtower and Cathedral on the second tier. Many routes here are worthy, sprinkled with square patina edges. Well worth doing the approach.
Follow the path up the gully just east of The Cathedral. You can see Concrete Jungle and Fuego by looking up the gully from it's base.*However the approach to concrete jungle and the others left is quite scary do to the steep dirt scramble that is required for the last 40-50ft! A rap station has been added at the top, or base of Fuego, for the easy descent (NICE!).
Weather station 0.3 miles from here

I'm not quite sure how to best say this, but whoever thought of installing that approach rappel anchor had to have some creative funk going on because I never would have thought to do it. Rappelling the approach is likely the weirdest rap I have ever done. You literally swim through brush while lowering through 45 degree loose dirt and ledges. More exciting than the climbs themselves! Not sure if it was worth it over downclimbing that crap, but my rope didn't get stuck so I'll probably do it again.
