Description

West-facing wall uphill and between Blackline Buttress and Waltz Formation.. The buttress is split by a sizable horizontal roof at one third height with lighter yellow colored rock below and dark grey rock above. Several routes of classic status can be found here.

Getting There

Hike to the Blackline formation skirting around the western protuding edge of the formation to continue traversing north. Follow the climbers train from the prow of blackline north staying relatively at the same elevation until the wall is visible on one's right. Scramble up mossy 3rd and 4th class terrain to a small ledge where the climbs begin.
