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.

Is the best approach from Sunshine or CynPinn? We took the CynPinn way, and there was a lot of route finding through gravel to slow us down. 3 days ago

It's been ages since I have been up there, but I remember both ways sucking. I think Sunshine way might suck slightly less. 1 day ago
