Description

The large clean buttress looming above the Sheelite Crags. This formation has lured climbers in over the years but has largely remained an adventurous and untamed. Climbable rock wraps around from the south to the north with the cleanest appearing sections facing south/southeast. Sun and shade can be found at all times and its high position means that the sun is on it before the canyon floor receives it. Sun remains long after the floor loses it. Best times to climb: Fall and Winter.

Getting There

The base of the formation is located approximately 1000 ft above the road with approaches varying from loose rock gulleys to several climbs that ascend to the large ledge system at its base.
