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


Killer edge climbing with closely spaced bolts above a roof. Turn the corner and pull onto a red, crystalline slab for 3 bolts. Then a little gear in an easy crack and three more bolts up a perfect slab to the anchors of El Guapo.


Starts on the middle tier about 60 feet above the gear belay for Snowflakes/Plasma.


bolts and on for two pieces in the finger size. a few long slings to reduce rope drag. You won't be able to hear each other at all so work it out beforehand. We had a 70m rope and just made it to that upper anchor. Two raps to the ground.
