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

Description

To the right of the waterfall, in front of a large vandalized boulder are 2 bolted routes. This is the right route. Climb up the small crack to the ledge, clip the bolt and make your move. The difficulty eases a bit the rest of the way.

Protection

2 bolts at the top for an anchor, and 3 draws for the climb. There are 2 different anchors now, one above the climb to the right (Fleeting Glimpse), and one on the next ledge up, but in a better line for this climb. Recommend using the higher anchors.

Agreed, the crux is the section as you move past the first bolt, nothing but slick rock. Apr 13, 2015

beginning is super slick. crux is between 1st and 2nd bolt. trust those feet! definitely harder than 5.7 at the beginning, typical LCC! stayed "cool" even when it was 95 in the valley Jun 28, 2013
I like this route. it was a very fun introduction to little cottonwood slab climbing. Aug 30, 2010

One move wonder on river polished granite, slightly easier than its neighbor to the right, probably mid 5.8. Kinda runout getting to the 2nd bolt, you could fiddle in a micro in the undercling but it won't do you much good if you fall. May 12, 2009
I did these routes Sept. 11, 2007 and the higher anchor is now gone. Sep 12, 2007

The moves past the first bolt are hard 5.9 and considerably harder than anything on Hard Knocks. After that 5.7 seems a reasonable grade. The bolt protects the hard part well though. Jun 16, 2005
