Description

This tall buttress has some of the best steep/face/crack routes that the Bald has to offer. The sunny side is great when temps are cool and crisp. On warmer days you can head around to the shady side for a good pump workout.

Getting There

Approach from either the boulder field trail or the Cereal Buttress trail.
