Description [Suggest Change]

The Pedestal Buttress is a 50 foot high buttress containing arount 20 very good climbs that are easily accessed. Routes like Birch Tree Crack (5.8) and Upper Diagonal (5.9) see a lot of traffic, and there's even a two-pitch climb, The Pedestal (5.4), that's great for practicing a lead traverse. This is another wall that will fill up by 9am on the weekends, so get here early.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

To get to the Pedestal Buttress hike the CCC Trail to "T" in the trail at The Monster. Turn left at The Monster and continue up (northwest) until you reach a second "T". Straight ahead is Pedestal Buttress.
