Routes in Tree Hugger Buttress

Tree Hugger T 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c
Access Issue: RAIN AND WET ROCK: The sandstone in Red Rocks is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Details

Description

The scruffy, shady, 1.5 pitch wall everyone walks by to access the Brownstone & Rainbow Walls or descend from Jackrabbit Buttress. The cliff offers a stupendous view of the Juniper Canyon walls, a novel tree-hugging descent, solitude, moss, and lichen.

Getting There

Hike up Juniper Canyon past The Black Pearl. The buttress is on the left (hiking uphill) and has a strikingly large pine tree with a missing top below its central crack system. The trail forks left and leads to the (climbers') right side of the buttress.
