June 1st, 2017:The Salt Lake Climbers Alliance (SLCA), the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), and Access Fund announce the signing of an unprecedented lease for 140 acres in Little Cottonwood Canyon (LCC). The parcel, known as the Gate Buttress, is about one mile up LCC canyon and has been popular with generations of climbers because of its world-class granite.
The agreement secures legitimate access to approximately 588 routes and 138 boulder problems at the Gate Buttress for rock climbers, who will be active stewards of the property. The recreational lease is the result of several years of negotiations between LDS Church leaders and the local climbing community.
Access Note: The climbs on the Church Buttress above the vault as well as the Glen boulders that have been traditionally closed will remain closed.
Please help us steward this area and leave no trace.
Some of these routes may have been done in the past as we found a peg in the big main corner and also a peg right of Cavas de Weinert. So these are the first recorded ascents. If you did any of these routes in the past and would like the glory, I would be happy to change route names, FA names etc.
The star ratings are based on this crag only.
All the routes were okay, with some better than others.
Bring extra slings in case you need to replace or backup anchors. Worth carrying a nut tool on the lead for cleaning.
