Warning Access Issue: Seasonal Closures 2024 - Bitty Buttress, Blob (Eagle Rock & Security Risk now open!) DetailsDrop down

Description Suggest change

Looking for a well-protected, challenging 5.9 crack to climb? Eldo feeling a bit too greasy in this heat? If so, the shady "West Face" (a misnomer- this is a crack climb for the most part) route on Bell Buttress is for you. Locate this little beauty as the right-most of three crack systems right of Cosmosis. Climb the crack in the shallow right-facing corner, over a roof at a big flake, to a 2-bolt belay.

Rappel (watch you don't miss the ledge!) or continue up the system to the top of the rock (a bit of wandering around). Solid 5.9!

Protection Suggest change

Doubles, wired nuts, TCUs to 3" cams. A 50m rope is OK for lowering.
