Description

Condor Buttress is situated high on the north side of Icicle Creek Canyon. It is notable for the long multipitch sport climb Condorphamie Addiction, a route which seems to generate a lot of opinions. There are a few other lines on this formation, and a handful on relatively nearby crags such as Area 51, Non-Wall, and Bathtub dome.

Getting There

Condor Buttress, Bathtub Dome, Area 51, and nearby crags are located approximately 8.8 miles up Icicle Creek road (from the intersection with Highway 2). Look for a pull-out on the south side of the road. The approach trail starts on the north side near the parking. As with many crags in Icicle, finding the trailhead is often the first crux of the day. Condor Buttress is reached after about 1 hour of hiking along an indistinct trail.
