Description

The Parking Lot Buttress is sunny but gets shade early. When the South wall is still in the sun, one can find a shady breeze here. This area sees much less traffic but deserves much more attention. The crack climbing here is unique to the area, and though grungy in places, the rock quality is very high.

Getting There

From the Precipice Trail parking lot, follow the standard precipice trail for 10 minutes, climbing one section using metal rungs. The trail turns left and heads straight up a talus field.  At the top of the talus, the standard precipice trail turns right and leaves the talus, but if you just continue following the talus upwards, you'll find the buttress at the top right of the talus field.
