Description

This wall faces East, the upper pitches are the first to see light in the gulch. The is the Bedrock area holds 3 pitches for cragging out of the gulch off the sun deck boulder.

The multipitch routes that start here have good ledges for belaying. Route finding seems to be the hardest on the 3rd pitches of Minions of Chaos and Capitan Caveman, read the route descriptions well.

The rock is really good on some pitches while others it suffers a bit of "adventure layer" so to speak. The snowpack leaves a nice dirt/pine needle/choss line on the rock itself behind the sun deck boulder and here and there on the slab, so beware of a grenades looming early season. Bring a helmet.
Gate Buttress Area Recreational Lease: Climbs on Church Buttress above vault remain closed Details

Getting There

Look for the 1st big boulder in the gulch ( "the sun deck"). Just as the talus/scree begins the wall it's on the west side of the gulch.

At the top of the Buttress lies a spiltter, this is the ?Butters Pitch?, pitch 4 on the Minions of Chaos.
