Description

Poe Buttress is an amazing crag with climbs predominantly in the advanced difficulty range. This crag may contain the highest percentage of classic routes in the area; however, there is little in the low-end difficulty range for beginners here. If you climb here, you will get a workout.

Getting There

Poe Buttress is located to the West of Cynical Pinnacle & Block Tower. You can approach similarly as for the above, but you must branch off left shortly before Cynical Pinnacle.
