Description Suggest change

South-facing buttress just right of Surf Bowl. Home to the infamous Time Wave Zero which starts on the left side of this buttress and eventually goes to the top of Sierra San Miguel's west side. The buttress is a little more secluded that other crags in Potrero, which makes it a good beginner spot on a busy day in the canyon. Also has incredible views of the canyon.

Getting There Suggest change

Hike up to the Agujas/Spires and move left over the saddle and aim for the Surf Bowl. Just below the Surf Bowl, look for a trail going right to the Buttress and the first bolt up the slab of TWZ.
