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 as well as the Glen boulders that have been traditionally closed will remain closed.
Please help us steward this area and leave no trace.
Also, a 70m rope is frequently necessary on some of these modern lines. The Martinez classic SWARM OF BEERS (5.10d) is actually two pitches, but can be led in one with 22 draws!
The limestone is the same as found on the rest of the Hellgate Cliffs, only Martinez has spent countless hours cleaning it to perfection. It is very popular. Still some loose rock has inevitably escaped Gregorio's attention, so please climb with caution.
As with all Hellgate areas, Always Wear Your Helmet.
