This track takes you to the switchback where the approach to The Snaz and Caveat Emptor leave the trail. For those two routes, leave the trail at the switchback and follow a climbers trail up and east along the base of Cathedral Buttress for a few minutes. There's a large tree and a small cave at the approach pitch. For Aerial Boundries and Escape From Death, continue on the maintained trail past the switchback and follow directions on each routes page.
