Description

Jabba Buttress contains a nice mixture of lines. I Need A Shower is a fun multi-pitch corner/crack climb and Blue Light Special is an outstanding and challenging face climb, both of which should not be missed. There are also several good sport routes that range from 5.10 - 5.13, and some good traditional fun as well.


THERE IS A FIXED STATIC LINE IN THIS AREA THAT IS USED BY THE LOCAL SAR AND CLIMBING COMMUNITY. PLEASE DO NOT REMOVE IT! IT IS EASILY FLICKED OUT OF THE WAY WHEN CLIMBING. THANKS.

Getting There

Follow the approach trail to the Watch Crystal, go right and look for the left-facing corner of Jabba the Hutt Levitates.

Hey, Tim, I'm headed up there today to climb on the Watch Crystal, and I'll take a closer look at it. I'm definitely down to work it and maybe some other new hard lines. Let me know if you want to collaborate. Sep 10, 2010

That crack is another futuristic East A prize. My friend Joel placed the bolts (on rappel, I believe). I don't think they put all that much effort into it at that time though. I have tried it, but also didn't put in much time on it. The move by the bottom bolt is really hard then the climbing gets easier and awesome, then really hard again. It's probly not as hard as some of the other things they bolted that were way over their heads. It is something I would really like to work on. You should check it out, give me a call if you need a belay. Apr 25, 2010

Does anyone (Tim?) know about the tips crack with a bolt at the bottom of it? It sits on the west face right of "Face to Nowhere" and left of "I Need a Shower". The guidebook shows the bolt on the topo but makes no mention of a route. Looks hard...has it gone free? Apr 23, 2010
