At first glance this buttress appears to be short, but looks can be deceiving. Next to the taller Main Wall it is easily overlooked, but the climbs on this wall are worth a look.

Getting There 

Walk up the drainage towards the crag. As you reach the crag this wall is the lowest section of rock you encounter.

Climbing Season

For the Horseshoe Piles area.

Weather station 4.5 miles from here
