DescriptionThis is a south-facing buttress above and between Snake Eyes and Super Collider. It has several sport routes and a couple short trad / TR pitches (including a 5.11 hand crack out a roof on the left and a 5.7 crack/dihedral up the lower slab on the right).
The buttress gets early sun, but it goes into the shade as the sun dips behind the hills in the early afternoon. The approach takes about 10 minutes.
Getting TherePark at the Super Collider parking area (the last pullout on the right in the Narrows and the first one above Snake Eyes).
Climb the slab above the parking area to the rib, head to the top of the rib, and cross the gully to the right. Head up another slab to the top of a rib, climb to the top of the rib, then scramble across the talus to the base of the crag (see the photo).
