Description

The western end of the South Corner Cliff is capped by a trio of buttresses, below which is a long, steep slab. These features take some effort to reach, and are definitely not scrubbed and polished, but there are several excellent routes in there; definitely worth a visit.
This area is high enough, & just far enough off the East Path to provide an alpine feel.

Getting There

Take the East Path past the Measles Walls to the Height-of-Land Wall, a short cliff whose rightmost corner almost touches the trail. Walk left along the base of the cliff, then scramble upward a hundred yards or so, passing the Blueberry Ledge to its right, to reach the base of the Constitution Wall. One can also reach this point by climbing 3 pitches of Stairway to Heaven and walking left a hundred feet.
To reach the three buttresses, one must either bushwhack off the East Path shortly after passing the second giant boulder, then scout for gullies leading above the Eyebrow Overhang. Or, get to the top of the Blueberry Ledge and climb the short bit of slab, traversing left to reach the base of those buttresses.
