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


This route climbs a slab up and to the right (east)of the Mormon vault. Start with an old smc hanger in the middle of a slab in the trees. Above this hanger, arch up and left via natural protection. Head towards a clean slab with three new bolts. Above these bolts climb up and right to a two bolt belay. On rope barely gets you back down.


On the approach to the Fin, there is a small opening with a clean slab in it. If you walk to the base of the slab, you'll see the Smc hanger. This is the route.


small cams, quickdraws, maybe a mid sized cam

The Granite guide talks about a pin protecting the moves leading to the 2nd bolt (after the long easy run-out). There is no pin. After hauling up a tool and doing some excavation you can get a decent micronut and/or cam. Oct 9, 2017

It wasn't Troy Warburton who did any of the reporting of this was me. As soon as I can find my photo's of this line, I will add comments. Troy is a local, who may have dropped out of the climbing scene. I am still involved, but new to this form of communication. Troy and I have never been into reporting FA's for personal glory or ego. I merely started to communicate about this route, just to give relevant history for this climb. Sorry this may have stepped on your toes....... I don't mean to jump on to other peoples parade. I only discovered this FA link as an accident, and noticed that these new routes sounded familiar. I just thought I would share some information. Oct 12, 2006
So, if TDA's route is merely a variation to a 1985 route that you now report, why was Other Intentions NOT reported in the 3 previous guidebooks including LCC since 1986? Troy Warburton is from out of state...if he reported to you the route, why didn't you report. I think you are just into jumping on other people's parade. Oct 7, 2006
