Description

This buttress has the longest routes at Tahquitz, as they go from the lowest point on the rock to the summit.

Getting There

The base of the buttress is quite rounded, and may not be obvious. If you are hiking from Lunch Rock, you will go along the Northwest Recess, then turn left and drop down quite a ways. As soon as you can start hiking across again, you are at the North Buttress. Past here, the trail along the base of the rock is level or a bit uphill, and the angle of the rock above is noticeably lower. From the top of the rock, scramble (Class 2/3) southeast to the saddle, and then take the trail clockwise all the way around the rock.
