DescriptionThis is the rock formation(s) that make up the north side of The Black Wall (Chicago Lakes) cirque. The Tan Buttresses are very obvious from any point in the cirque. The granite can rival anything in RMNP. This formation makes up the south side of Gray Wolf Peak.
Getting ThereStart by parking at summit lake and hiking the climbers trail up Spaulding, as for The Black Wall. Traverse the top of The Black Wall and hike up a short distance until a ramp/ledge system appears on the right. Leave your packs at the top of the ramp.
Hike and scramble down the ramp/ledges, leading to the base of the Buttresses.
