Description

The buttress way up on the north ridge of LCC

Getting There

Start at the same trail as for the Black Peeler at the Power Plant. Follow the trail east past the South facing slabs of the Black Peeler. Hike up, then trending west again to the East Gate gully. Ascend this loose section to some fixed ropes on the right edge of the gully. At the top of the ropes, traverse west again to where a good climbers trail winds up through through Oak and Pines to where a final short traverse West leads to the cliffs. From here, hike down to the base of the slab routes or up if you want to access the Direct North Face/ Wheeler Dihedral area. The elevation is about 8,200'.

Way, way up there.
