Description

Probably the most concentrated area of moderate sport climbs in the area. The buttress is sunny and quite hot in summer afternoons. The south facing rock face is quite pleasant for winter climbing with not a soul in sight. Snow usually melts off within a day or two after a storm. The rock is decent and clean.

Getting There

Park on the south side of the road in a large pullout area about a 1/2 mile west of the Woodford's store. A 20 minute hike up a fairly well worn trail will lead you to the base of the south toe of the buttress.
