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


This climb starts above the huge boulder at the edge of the water. Climb straight up for 20 ft., then follow crack systems angling right for a long ways to a set of chains at the top of the cliff.

Avoid this route at all costs. It's a mega-choss pile.


gear to 4". A few large pieces helpful.

The crux is actually pretty fun on this one and well-protected. There's some decent climbing but dubious gear throughout due to the choss factor. Shares an anchor with the 2-pitch 10c. You can rap to the ground (above the upper falls, not where you started climbing) with a single 70m Sep 2, 2018
