This is the next large buttress to the right of The Shadow Buttress. The rock is a whiter color than most of the rock at Ibex and is generally good, solid quartzite. James Garret's Ibex guidebook lists only 2 routes on this wall, but a few more have been added over the years on the right side of the buttress.

Getting There 

Park somewhere convenient and hike up. Less than 5 minutes.

As of 4/2/2016, a pair of Prairie Falcons have taken up residence in the Wolfenstein Buttress. They were observed making territorial flights and are or will be nesting in one of the cracks or cavities on the wall. Consider avoiding this formation and climbing elsewhere to give them the space they need.

My guess is that climbing on the Newlywed wall (or further right) or on the Shadow Buttress (or anything left) is less likely to disturb them. Keep an eye out for them, and if they make repeated flights by you while vocalizing (it is a long, high, shrill call) this is a sign that you may be disturbing their nesting territory.

A trail, marked at the beginning by rock cairns has been constructed/made, hopeflly to decrease erosion and encourage people to take the same path to the foot of the crags. This remains a fragile environment. Thankyou for using and your help maintaining these various trails at the Ibex crags
