Description

Middle of the steep backside of the Button Boulder. Start on crimps and climb hard moves then topout to the left at the high point of the boulder. Squat start (not enough there for full sit start) adds a grade.

Just went by the Button Boulder today and a medium-sized tree has fallen directly in front of the steep side. This makes it impossible to climb Hardest Button or Work Horse. I am no longer local or else I would try to remove it. If you find yourself headed out there, be sure to bring an axe.

EDIT 11/27/2016: forgot to mention I moved this tree a couple years ago. It is once again climbable, but still hard as hell :) Dec 22, 2012

The first two or three moves are the crux, though don't underestimate the topout.... Jul 28, 2010
