Description

This is one of the most popular areas in Blue Mounds. Saturday Buttress is located between Many Cracks Buttress and Midnight Buttress. It contains a number of really fun leads Ivy Right (5.5), Old Stump (5.7), and Jasper's Dihedral (5.8) as well as several moderate top rope problems: Gulliver's Travels (5.7+), Black and Blue Bulge (5.8+), and Black Wall (5.9). The cliff is clearly visible from the paved trail.

Getting There

From the parking lot off Rock County 8 (141st st.), take the paved bike and pedestrian path until the cliff line is clearly visible, about .75 miles. Shortly after passing the tree line, take the approach trail that cuts a right angle with the paved trail through the grass to the base of the cliff.

Top Rope Approach/Descent: The best approach for setting up top ropes is to scramble up the chimney on the far left (south) of this buttress.
