Description

An adventurous area of an adventurous cliff. South of Whitney-Gillman Ridge is a collection of butresses that are often quite loose even by cannon standards. Rock is less clean but good rock can be found by those with adventurous spirit.

Getting There

Take the Whitnet-Gillman Ridge Trail until you can go left below ridge. Go left on a faint trail (be wary there is a small patch of poison ivy).

Why change the area name to Henderson's Buttress when this is only 1 of the 3 prominent left of the Whitney Gilman Ridge (including the Pinky and the Brain Buttress just right of the Anderson Wall and the Muir Buttress right of that). I thought it more clear when all the routes were listed under the "South End". Mar 22, 2013

I just realized that my last comment was only a matter of symantics, and it doesn't really matter what you call the southern section of the cliff. However, I was wondering if we could put a few sub areas into this section once all the other unlisted routes start getting submitted. That way all the routes and their locations might be more easily organized. For now its probably fine as there are still only a handful of routes posted. Eventually, someone's going to pulloff a repeat of some of those crazy routes on The Anderson Wall, and it would be nice to see a well documented area for their listings. Mar 24, 2013
Looks like the Henderson Butress has suffered significant rockfall this spring (2015). (I know, I know. "Cannon" is just a local climbing term for "rockfall", so why mention it.)



Looking forward to some new route development... May 10, 2015
