DescriptionThe Buttress is the area between Fishermans Wall and the Main Wall. The climbs are found on three faces. The south face of the buttress forms the right side of the large left-facing corner that contains Tarzan (5.8+, right-most climb on Fishermans Wall). The southeast face is a little farther to the right and marked by ledges and broken rock. There is also a long, bushy ramp that splits the southeast face roughly in half. The small east face contains the last two routes and is located just left of the Main Face. There is also a pair of climbs on ledge above Intertwine. Several of the climbs are typically done in two short pitches in order to minimize rope drag.
To descend the routes, walk of right and follow the trail down to the base of the Practice Face.
Getting ThereTo reach The Buttress, follow the trail up from the gravel climbers parking lot to the point where it intersects the climbing wall near Green Corner. Follow the base of the wall to the right. Walk along Fishermans Wall (the tallest and steepest face at Crow Hill) to the right until you come to a large corner. The south face is just to the right of the corner (look for a pair of bolts that mark Fool on a Hill (5.9)). Continue around the corner for the climbs on the southeast face. The final two climbs are found just to the left of Intertwine.
