June 1st, 2017:The Salt Lake Climbers Alliance (SLCA), the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), and Access Fund announce the signing of an unprecedented lease for 140 acres in Little Cottonwood Canyon (LCC). The parcel, known as the Gate Buttress, is about one mile up LCC canyon and has been popular with generations of climbers because of its world-class granite.
The agreement secures legitimate access to approximately 588 routes and 138 boulder problems at the Gate Buttress for rock climbers, who will be active stewards of the property. The recreational lease is the result of several years of negotiations between LDS Church leaders and the local climbing community.
Access Note: The climbs on the Church Buttress above the vault that have been traditionally closed will remain closed.
Please help us steward this area and leave no trace.
In the middle there is a short wall (30'-50') that has six bolted routes and seven gear routes that are 5.7-5.10 in difficulty. Routes on both the left and right side of the short wall have been bouldered.
For clarity the routes are numbered from left to right starting with a number. None of the gear routes have names and are noted only so that people know they exist though several are worth doing. The ordering, just by coincidence, is that every other route is a bolt or gear route.
This is also the same approach one takes for the Green Stash Wall which is to the left around the corner and Cecret Stash which is around to the right.
