Detached buttress south of the main Shadow Buttress. Access by walking along base of the west-facing rock from the base of “Hiding from the Torch.” Follow axis of the buttress that forms an arête to the top using ample horizontal cracks for protection. Also good for LD trad practice.


See route map and overview photos.


Small to medium cams with one bolt to protect the first moves and help locate the climb.

Very interesting rock on this formation and what a fantastic escape from the heat back in this area. Oct 30, 2012
