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


This route climbs a seam in a slab about 100 feet right of the falls. On the left side of this slab is a bolted line (The River's Edge, 5.10b R **). Look for a seam.

(1) Climb up this seam through a small roof, and past a few more pins/bolts at horizontal cracks. Use every available pro. Stop at the second tree and belay. From the lower tree, you can definitely top-rope if you set up some directionals.

(2) On pitch two, climb up through the roof (5.9) or around it to the right (5.8), up through some bushy cracks to a 2-bolt anchor. The bolted line above is Evening Falls, 5.10a *.

Descent: Rappel the route.


Mostly small stuff on a standard rack
