June 1st, 2017:The Salt Lake Climbers Alliance (SLCA), the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), and Access Fund announce the signing of an unprecedented lease for 140 acres in Little Cottonwood Canyon (LCC). The parcel, known as the Gate Buttress, is about one mile up LCC canyon and has been popular with generations of climbers because of its world-class granite.
The agreement secures legitimate access to approximately 588 routes and 138 boulder problems at the Gate Buttress for rock climbers, who will be active stewards of the property. The recreational lease is the result of several years of negotiations between LDS Church leaders and the local climbing community.
Access Note: The climbs on the Church Buttress above the vault as well as the Glen boulders that have been traditionally closed will remain closed.
Please help us steward this area and leave no trace.
Start the route up a shallow channel of choss and climb to a high first bolt. Pull a large roof/bulge, then work up and right over various, varied terrain. Find the crux near the line's 3/4 mark and finish at a two-bolt anchor.
A bit pumpy at times, highly technical at others, Heroes are Zeros offers a little bit of everything. Some of the rock is solid, some of the rock is questionable? Its all part of the territory. A wild, creative line worth doing at least once.
