Description

Bighorn Buttress is the dome shaped crag high on the ridge of TLTTF. Some excellent routes with great views of New Jack City. The longer approach is greatly rewarded.
East facing and shady in the afternoon.

Getting There

From the kiosk, follow the trail past Bedrock Wall as it hugs the formation on your left. Follow the trail as it opens up to the upper valley. Look for the cairn that starts the zig-zagging trail that goes up to Bighorn Buttress.
