The overall climb of the Butte via the North Face (the easiest way up) is around 900 vertical feet total from the TH to the top. 


The start is directly up from where the road ends and is the obvious weak point in the rock band.  This rock band is only 150 feet from the top of the mountain.


poor rock quality (soft and sandy), but a crack allows for cams from 1/2 inch to 1.5 inches.


A few additional notes:
-From the Reds Canyon road, park on the northeast side of the butte at an old truck (38.6898, -110.9845).

-From the parking area, hike west following an old 4x4 road as it gains altitude. Once you've passed an obvious adit, climb up a boulder gully (somewhat recent rock collapse) to regain the old road. Follow the road to the end where the start of the climb is obvious.

-2X BD C4 #0.5 would protect the crux. A #1 & 2 for an anchor.

-Safe rappel anchor isn't trivial as plenty of the larger blocks are not stable. Use caution. Apr 26, 2018
