Description [Suggest Change]

You can access these buttress, and the wonderfully shaded and magically hidden area, either by scrambling across top of the rock formation that runs from the top of Octabulgey and forms the wall that Torch View and Periscope climb the east facing face of, or by crawling through a “tunnel” that is just to the right of Torch View. The main Shadow Buttress, and the one ~50m to the southwest that is Ramp-Art, are both north-facing formations that are gently sloped at the base and are vertical nearing the top. There is also easy access using the trail that heads directly towards the Torch from the north. Three projects ascend the west-facing rock between the prows of the two buttresses.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Either as above through the tunnel or by the northern trail.
