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.
Climb up the arete to the right of Fat Albert, topping out with some technical sloper work.
The first few moves seem just a tad bit harder for shorter folk, as the starting foot will probably be too far down to reach the sidepull.
Start left hand on a crimpy pinch, and right hand around arete on small crimp.
Top out using slopers to the right of where you started(don't finish on the same face as Fat Albert Gang)
Downclimb using the trees leaning against the boulder
