Description [Suggest Change]

If you can't tell from the route names Hotter than Hell, Inferno, and the like this is a very warm southern exposed cliff. On a summer day it can really live up to the route names...However in the late fall and sometimes winter you can have a pleasant day when the weather is way too cold for other crags....

You can recognize this section on the far left end of the cliff by the tree ledge splitting it at half height...Much like the one splitting the left end of Cathedral.

Must do, Hotter than Hell (5.9) to Inferno (5.8) CLASSIC! Also Atlantis (5.10b), Lost Souls (5.10a), Tranquility (5.10c) among other
great climbs....

Getting There [Suggest Change]

A long pretty trail curves through boulders to get you to the far end of the cliff for this area...Pick the trail up just after leaving the parking lot turn right follow it for a while you will see the south buttress getting closer... You will arrive under inferno's start...Have fun...

it should be know to keep continuity with ed webster's guide and the other guides that this area is considered "the south buttress"...... Sep 15, 2007

Actually I think the best guidebook for Cathedral/Whitehorse is the Jerry Handren Guide, and it names this area the Inferno/Atlantis Area. Sep 16, 2007
Of the many guidebooks I have to the area, the SOuth Buttress is the name of choice by far. May 5, 2009

Tranquility provides for a very fun and harder alternative to Inferno. If you've done HTH--> Inferno before and want to step it up a notch try cold day in Hell to Tranquility (.10b). It's the finger crack behind the tree just left of Inferno. Nov 7, 2009

^^ These are sub-areas of The South Buttress, so both are correct. Oct 26, 2012
