DescriptionThis buttress has a multitude of climbs ranging from 5.6 to 5.11. There are still new routes sprouting on this wall. Depending on the weather you can find a nice face, as you can climb the north, west, or east faces. A short approach and a decent quantity of sport routes translate into a crowded cliff at times.

Getting TherePark at Stairs Gulch, and clamber up the bank on the SW of where the creek crosses the road.
Follow the trail through the woods until you reach a fork, take the right fork for the north and west faces, and the left fork for the east face.
Challenge Buttress is right there to your right at this point; just find the nearest trail to hit the east face, trying not to damage too much vegetation in the process.
