Description

The Changing the Stripes Buttress is a finger of conglomerate that sits barely up-canyon from Heart Rock. The southern end of this finger is home to Changing the Stripes, which was the first complete route in the area. The broad east face reclines at a gentle angle, but is for the most part covered in moss. The route Bayer takes a line up a swath of clean stone at the far northern end of this face. The approach to this area is a mild thrash, but the climbing is well worth the effort, and it is possible to easily and conveniently link up the routes in the area.
This area is located on private property. Details

Getting There

Park at the obvious pullout/camping spot directly below Heart Rock (200 yards below Anti-Gravity Rock). From here, there are plenty of options but any one will involve some bushwhacking. Cross the streambed and work your way up the hillside, trending left, toward the Changing the Stripes Buttress. Those wishing to climb Bayer should instead trend right, toward the obvious gully between Changing the Stripes Buttress and Heart Rock.
