Description

This large buttress of rock has a number of sport and trad routes on its north west face. The rock is generally good quality and with some time the climbs will clean up nicely.

Typically the climbing is on well featured faces and slabs or in deep cracks at the sides of the faces.

Getting There

From the parking lot hike up the hill for 100 yards. Trend rightwards and pass a camping spot and continue up the hill. You will soon pass by overhanging fins of rock. After these fins head rightwards between large boulders, and then continue heading up the hill. Soon the buttress will come into view. Hike directly towards the buttress. The bolted lines on the left should be fairly obvious.
