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 take the paved bike and pedestrian path until the cliff line is clearly visible. 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.
