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


This is a fun slab with a weird up and down start. The crux is after the first bolt, and a fall onto the starting ledge is a real possibility- hence the R rating. Please don't break yourself. Follow the wandering bolts (definitely bolted on lead) to the shallow right facing corner- then up above to the seam/cracks. Finish with an unprotected 50 foot romp up the 5.0 prow.


Shares the start with Magic Circus. Climb up the broken crack 15 feet onto a little pillar/ledge, and then down climb to the right 10 feet. A 70 meter rope gets you down best.


Mainly bolts (5?) with a few finger sized cam options up higher. Lower off the bolt and pin anchor with webbing. The routes original pin/s have been removed and replaced with bolts.
