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


A good, mixed, moderate with bomber gear and three generously spaced bolts. Climb up a limestone "staircase" to a parallel finger crack left of a roof. Continue up over easier terrain passing a few bolts and ending at a chain anchor. A good warm-up or cool-down with some nice views of the canyon. This is a fairly straight forward line with rather solid rock for the area.


Directly right of Resin Scraper is an arete with a large roof near the base. What the Hell starts left of the roof and follows the finger crack to the arete.


3 bolts plus chains, finger sized gear up to 1 inch.

The first bolt on this route is off of a ledge about 20' above the start of the climb. Place a small to medium cam or two to gain the ledge. Then follow the arete clipping three or so bolts to the chains.Great view and super fun for the grade.
Has someone really added a bolt to the start? Oct 12, 2008

I looked for this route and found one in the same area that had 10 bolts and isn't listed here unless this is the same route with more bolts added.

I'm trying to figure out which route I climbed - thanks Sep 4, 2008
