Description

A bit of history from the Black Bible:
"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.
Gate Buttress Area Recreational Lease: Climbs on Church Buttress above vault remain closed Details

Getting There

After passing the Gate, park across the road from the boulder overhanging the road with a stick propped underneath. The trail starts just west of the stick boulder, and goes north up the hill with many branches on either side to reach several different zones.

Because this area would get super confusing if we listed individual boulders, I've tried to set it up into different zones as in the Black Bible. Please take that into consideration when adding new areas/boulders, and if any of my info is wrong or unclear let me know so that I can change it. Apr 18, 2015
