Description

15 routes or so line this large buttress. The climbing ranges from 5.6 to 5.11. A number of routes exist behind the buttress as well, but since this is also the approach gully it is probably best to avoid them on busy days.

Getting There

The easiest approach as per Saturday Buttress. Once you reach the base of Saturday Buttress you have two options for reaching the top. The first is to climb the approach gully of Saturday Buttress and continue along the top to this buttress. The second option is to continue along the cliff line to the base of the buttress. The approach is an easy scramble between Everyday Buttress and Chimney Buttress. Scramble up large broken rocks to a narrow passage heading to the right behind the buttress.
