Description

South side of Little Cottonwood Canyon. Routes tend to be Northwest facing. This is described in the Ruckman Guide as the first granite buttress on the south side that one will encounter as one is going up canyon.
Approach time is not really much longer than 35 minutes and has become easier over the last few years due to the trails at the mouth and more traffic.
Gate Buttress Area Recreational Lease: Climbs on Church Buttress above vault remain closed Details

Getting There

See the Ruckman Guide. Drive into the parking and hiking area just at the mouth and park. Head across the creek at the trail crossing below the crag....head on up.
