This buttress lies above Ivy Buttress. A good way to approach the climbs here is to climb one of the climbs on Ivy first.

The left end of the buttress has some good corner climbs.

Getting There 

From the left side of the crag, hike up the trail that follows the side of the crag. Traverse right to the foot of the buttress, the first climb you'll see if the steep Left Hand Crack.

A classic problem. Climb directly up the awkward crack system until steep crimpy moves give way to good finishing holds.Moving left to the large ledge at mid height may seem easier, but the step right off the ledge can be tricky....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
