Description

Named after the giant Manta Ray shaped roof, Perched high atop this majestic and very elaborate tower system of aretes, gullies and splitter cracks for days. 600+ feet in height, The Manta buttress is divided into two very distinct sectors, Manta Left & Manta Right. The overall seriousness of this formation has been intimidating to say the least and is ripe for adventure. Climb/pioneer at your own risk!!!
At the time of this posting Two major routes have been forged, (Rain Shadow) which is The giant right facing corner going up ML and (Meddle) which is the beautiful large pallet of discontinuous splitters running to the top of MR!!!

Getting There

Next Giant Buttress/Tower system past Medicine Man as you wonder your way up along the base of the WOE.
