Description

Easy bolted lines are the only thing in short supply here. From difficult, slabby sport lines to corners and roofs, to beautiful plumbline cracks- Burning Buttress has something for almost everyone. Known for its concentration of quality 5.10 gear lines foremost, but also a good destination for the >5.12 sport climber.
