Description

Situated at the base of the Cathedral Spires, Flying Buttress is one of the key landmarks for starting your excursions into the maze of gullies that comprise the approach trails to some of the more obscure climbs in the Spires. Just before reaching Flying Buttress, you pass the 3-4 gully. Just pass the Buttress is the 4-5 gully which leads to such classic climbs as Eye Tooth and East Gruesome.

Getting There

Park at the Ten Pins parking lot and follow the Cathedral Spires trail until you are almost at the base of the Spires. There is an obvious trail which cuts off to the right just before the main trail steepens. Follow this right hand branch for about 5 minutes and you will see a spire with a large perforation through it. The hole is similar to the top half of the eye in the Needles Eye. This spire is Flying Buttress.
