Description

The Third Buttress is home to many unique routes. Most are fairly long for this area and many have awesome roofs!

Getting There

The approach for the Third Buttress is essentially the same as for the 1st Buttress. Follow the old railbed upstream along the Meadow River. After about 10-15 minutes, you will find the cairns and path that lead uphill to the 1st Buttress. Continue along the railbed, passing a creepy shack on the right side of the road. Once you see this, continue a bit further and look for a set of cairns on the left at a path that heads uphill. Follow this path until you reach the cliff. The path should put you at the base of Meathead, 5.11c sport.
