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.
From the BB. Start all the way at the back of the cave with right hand on a shelf, and left on a blocky hold to the left of the crack. Climb up the crack and out right up the ledge. Top out straight up or out right, about the same either way.
BB has this at V4, but it’s on the easier end if not a V3.
On the north side of a medium sized boulder, just north of English Patient, (which you’ll hit maybe 30 yds past the turn off for Classic)
