Description

Billboard Buttress is the formation due south of Pixie Rock and is a popular meeting spot due to it's central location, message board and trash/recycling bins. Routes here have zero approach and run the gamut from easy cracks to runout face with something for everyone - except that parking spot you just missed.

Getting There

Billboard Buttress is the obvious formation the road curves around as you first enter Indian Cove proper. The message board and trash/recycling bins are also a giveaway that you've arrived.

What is the line that sends through on the left corner of sheet bends? Also, I topped out on the short crack at the top. A fun one move wonder. Is it part of anything? Mar 6, 2011
