Description

The Dihedrals Area portion of the Gate Buttress has many fine climbs, most being dihedrals! Nearly all the routes are 5.9 or harder, except for Satan's Corner (5.8). For the most part, the climbs are single pitch with not much fixed gear.

Getting There

Park at the pull-outs 1 1/4 miles up the canyon. This is the same spot as used for the Schoolroom area. Find a climber's trail just west of the parking which cruises past the popular Gate Boulder. Follow the trail through switchbacks more or less straight up to the obvious dihedrals. Some scrambling is required before getting to the base of the climbs.
