Description Suggest change

This is the buttress in between the Triangle Wall and Pentapitch. It has lots of black roofs.

Getting There Suggest change

After passing the pumphouse watch for the gated road on the right (here).

Park at the pullout and walk down the road or through the woods to cross the stream at a bridge. Walk down canyon until you see a trail branching off on your left just before you reach two large pine trees on the right side of the main trail.

Hike up the trail (like you're going to the Pentapitch Area).
But, at the bottom of the talus, punch it straight up; this will put you at the bottom of Stiffler's Mom.

Or, for a less steep approach, go to Pentapitch and walk east along the base.
