Description

The West Sector is home to the popular multi-pitch Tolle Route aka Guides Route and several classic sport climbs. This zone is shady all morning long in summer and sunny from early afternoon until late evening.

Getting There

Follow the approach detailed on the main Rock Springs Buttress page. Once you cross the creek to the talus field, this sector will be the furthest left (west) and is flanked by a steep gully on its right side. Alternatively, you can approach from the top of the Tram and this will be the first crag you reach after descending into Rock Springs Canyon.
