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 that have been traditionally closed will remain closed.
Please help us steward this area and leave no trace.
Still a little dirty but will clean up nicely with more traffic. Hopefully people will come and check this one out! It's a little short but has good finger locks and is an aesthetic line.
Bring a 70m for the rappels.
The only mention of this route can be found in the Ruckman guide under the description for Pebbles and Bambam. There is also a picture in the Calderone LCC guidebook
Its a little hidden so just keep looking.
