Description

Approach by a trail 2.9 miles up from the Mazama Store, at the pullout with the Curvy Road and 45mph limit signs. The trail starts immediately behind this sign, and a wooden climbing register kiosk should be mostly visible from the road. Follow the trail up to the treeline, then the rock cairns throughout the scree/talus. As you get higher up, follow the right trending path into scree at a vague fork. The left, better marked trail continues to Sisyphus and Flyboys. The route starts at the toe of Buffalo Point Buttress near a prominent fir tree on a huge ledge at the bottom of the route. This route was established for climbers with a better lead head.

Raptors nest on the Diamond point buttress above. May-July. When you top Pitch-7 out please do not continue higher than the top anchor, talk, walk around, or attempt to walk off during Spring nesting season; leave as soon as possible. The biologist asks: "If the raptor notices you, and changes their behavior in any way, please start your descent"

Thanks! MVClimbers
