June 1st, 2017:The Salt Lake Climbers Alliance (SLCA), the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), and Access Fund announce the signing of an unprecedented lease for 140 acres in Little Cottonwood Canyon (LCC). The parcel, known as the Gate Buttress, is about one mile up LCC canyon and has been popular with generations of climbers because of its world-class granite.
The agreement secures legitimate access to approximately 588 routes and 138 boulder problems at the Gate Buttress for rock climbers, who will be active stewards of the property. The recreational lease is the result of several years of negotiations between LDS Church leaders and the local climbing community.
Access Note: The climbs on the Church Buttress above the vault as well as the Glen boulders that have been traditionally closed will remain closed.
Please help us steward this area and leave no trace.
"First developed in the mid-90's by Mike Call. After establishing a handful of problems and a rough trail system, Mike showed the area to some friends, and, as expected, a flurry of activity ensued and the area took shape."
A.K.A. The Stick, this is a great area with many classic problems, though they can be somewhat spread out, and hard to find at first. On the North side of the canyon, so it will get sunny and hot in the summer, which makes many of the sloper problems feel impossible.
