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.
A really fun line developed by Eric Ostrander and Sam Tingy in the early 2000s.
Start sitting in the narrow pit on the right side of the boulder with left hand on a good sundercling and right on a an in cut edge.
Use some juice to pull onto the boulder and reach right for the arete. After that the hardest moves are over and you can enjoy a long, fun and occasionally tricky jug fest up the arete to the left, topping out at the top just left of the giant flake.
Exit at the crack half way up the arete is easier, but still a soft V4 with that pull on.
