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

Description

Climb directly up to the first bolt and mantle onto a stance. Step onto terrible feet (crux) and continue up crimps to a climactic jump at the last bolt.

Great moves but marred by flaky rock. Bring a good brush.

Location

It's possible to set up a TR on this or any other face by soloing up the easy south slab. Slings (good condition as of 5/09) on the anchors provide a quick rappel.

Protection

Three bolts (last is 1/4") optionally supplemented by wires on old studs

Sure it is a small route on a boulder. In fact, it is effectively a 15 foot tall boulder problem between stances. However, it is a hard, well protected, slab route with fun moves making it a nice place to study this style of climbing without having to worry about a big runout. I used a nut on the rivet at the crux and clipped the three protection bolts. Give 'er! Nov 15, 2016
