Access Issue: Red Rock RAIN AND WET ROCK: The sandstone is fragile and is very easily damaged when wet. Details

Description

This is the triangular buttress left of Cloud Tower. It does not really have a distictive summit but merges into the main wall above.

Getting There

Follow the Approach most of the way to Cloud Tower. Before you get on the approach ramp that swings right, you will see the Ginger Buttress above you at the top of an alcove. Stay on the trail as long as possible to avoid nasty bushwhacking. At the last moment, cut left under the buttress and head up the drainage of the alcove to the base of Ginger Buttress.

a few years ago i put some approach beta together. there are great guidebooks out now, but just in case you're bored:

Seems like an anchor has been added 20 feet left of Power Failure. Now you can rap down with a single 70m rope from Unimpeachable, Ginger Cracks, and Power Failure. This should make Power Failure a lot safer, since people will no longer kick rocks down Power Failure.
4 single rope raps down the water streak, very clean and easy pulls. Nov 15, 2018
