Description

The South Buttress is the relatively steep, imposing wall on the left-most side of the cliff. While the rest of Whitehorse is characterized by friction climbing, the South Buttress offers technical and pumpy edge climbing up a soaring vertical wall. There are even some cracks thrown in too.

This area is divided into two sub-areas. The Atlantis Area is the farthest left part of the wall. This area contains classics such as Hotter Than Hell, Inferno, and Atlantis. The Wonder Wall Area includes routes to the right of Lost Souls and to the left of the Children's Crusade Wall.

There are a few bolted routes and nice corner cracks on the short wall above Inferno/Tranquility. Does anyone know what that wall is called or any info on those climbs? I couldn't find them in the Websters guidebook. Aug 21, 2010
