Description

The Second Buttress is a small area that contains a number of high quality climbs, not quite as many as the 1st and 3rd Buttress but it's easily accessed from either to add more routes to your day.

Getting There

This area is best approached by following the approach to the First Buttress. From the base of the cliff at the First Buttress, continue along the cliff, past an area of cliff break down. There are a few climbs hidden in an area behind a small free standing pillar and more routes will appear after passing the pillar. This area is also easily accessed from the 3rd Buttress by following the trail to the left along the base of the cliff.
