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


Climb off a platform, out of a gully onto the slab (Bolt). Work your way up a sickle shaped, shallow left facing dihedral past gear to another bolt. Climb the beautiful right facing dihedral into a roof trending right. Climb out of the roof to the chains.


50 yards left (East) of Direct Commitment is another slab that is distinguished by a crag wide roof system that guards the bottom of the slab. Head up to the far left side of this on a platform. Look up high to locate the roof. The trail heads over below the Commitment proper slab.


2 sets of camelots to #3, smallest C3s/peanuts after 1st bolt. Long runners

With a 70m you come up about 30ft shy of lowering. Instead, rap down and right (West) to a set of anchors that take you to the ground. These anchors are also the anchors for the two slab routes. 60m or 70m should be fine. Sep 22, 2013
