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

Description

This is a good pitch despite being quite short. A slippery slab crux at the first bolt, and nice technical face climbing for the remainder.
Start below the first bolt and climb past 3 good bolts to a sloping stance, then another slabby move past a quarter inch bolt leads to a good two bolt belay.

Location

The trail to the Great White Icicle brings you right to the base of this route at the lowest point of rock on the right side of the waterfall.

too much lichen for me to enjoy it. an afternoon with a steel brush would help immensely. May 3, 2010

The bottom is very slick where the green and yellow lichen work very hard to prevent that great granite stickiness we have all come to rely on for smeary, friction climbs. Jul 6, 2008

When I first looked at this route I thought "oh that looks easy, no problem". It turned out to be deceiving! Jun 27, 2008
