Description

This is the 40ft tall, mini crag perched on top of Whitehorse's South Buttress right above the climb Inferno (5.8)....
A cool micro crag, it houses 8 or so routes that see relatively few ascents.... Many routes have been over grown with lichen, but some are worth a side trip after summiting one of the South Buttress classics....
The best and most popular route is Cosmic Amazement (5.9), a tricky and thought-provoking route for its diminutive size.... Folks also speak well of the steep route Gravitational Mass (5.11b)...perhaps with a little cleaning the other routes would be more worth while as well....

So, after coming up one of the longer routes and you are thirsty for another pitch try out The Cosmic Crag....

Getting There

Climb any of the routes on the South Buttress and walk left along the cliff (watch your step) till you see the cliff...or come up Inferno (5.8) and it will be right in front of you....

You could hike up one of the trails, but you would probably feel let down if you did all that work....
