This excellent crag was the first to be developed in Unaweep and still holds the greatest concentration of established lines. There are 39 routes consisting of high quality crack and face climbing, this is definitely a traditional climbing venue with only one route being fully bolted. A good selection of gear and crack climbing savy are essential. Routes range from 5.7 to 5.12, one to six pitches. This crag is on private property which is owned by local climbers who currently allow access, please treat the area with respect. This is among the finest of grags in the canyon. Mother's Buttress consists of three different areas; Main, Middle, and Lower Buttresses, East to West or Left to Right when facing the crag from the road. Park and approach is the same for all sections of the crag.
Getting There [Edit]
3.1 miles West of Divide Road on Hwy 141. Park at a pull-out on the side of the road near a fire burn area directly below the Lower Mother Buttress. Hike to the base of the Lower in 10 minutes, 15 to the Upper.
