Access Issue: Gate Buttress Area Recreational Lease: Climbs on Church Buttress above vault remain closed Details


This climbs the prominent arete between Crescent Crack and The Great Chockstone. A fun romp up this arete. It starts on a thin ledge then moves up with some finger moves. Continue up the arete, using a couple of mantles. Pop over the really thin moves before the large ledge. Then the final 2 bolt-stretch requires creativity and a good eye.


2 bolts at the top and 6 draws for the climb.


There is a boulder problem at or near each bolt. Its a nice way to get a quick slab in after Mexican, and a nice way to break into .10 slabs because its so well protected. Jun 19, 2007

Well protected and very good moves! Each "boulder" problem seems to get a little more difficult. May 17, 2011
