Description [Suggest Change]

Formerly known as Malevolence Wall, the Flying Squirrel Buttress is probably the tallest cliff at Suck Creek. Climbers willing to brave poor rock quality will be rewarded by some excellent long climbs, including Bombs Away (5.8).

Getting There [Suggest Change]

After crossing the bridge over Suck Creek, continue up the canyon a mile or so to a large pullout on the right. As with the Upper Passes, make your way down a steep hillside and cross the creek. Follow a smaller creek up the opposite bank, then angle up and right through woods to the cliffline.
