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

Description

One of the few easier warmups for the area. Well protected undercling that meets up with the best part of Bloodsport

Location

Between Snowflakes and Blooddrive/Bloodsport. About 30 feet uphill of Bloodline.

Protection

Standard trad rack. Assorted gear and a few long runners. Look for a two bolt belay up and right from where the crack reaches a nice ledge.

Definitely a PG13 route. A fall at the start (the crux) could be rough. Wished I had some offset cams for the start. Once the crux is over the route is 5.7/5.8 for the remainder. Very fun and worthwhile though. Dec 6, 2014

Found this route to be a one-move wonder. Although you can get two cams in at the very start of the undercling, you're still in ankle tweaking territory until your feet get established 5 feet off the ledge.

Once you're on the diorite, it's a cake walk past there. Nov 29, 2013

A BD #5 protects the crux well. Fun Nov 2, 2013
