The first buttress you see up on your right as you drive into Froggatt. Has several decent mid-grade routes and a couple stiffer ones in the scoop. Most the routes are around 45 to 60 feet long.

Home to Bete Noire (.11+) and Sun Strike (.11-), two of the first routes to go up at Froggatt.

The top of the wall is accessible by a scramble up the groove on the right between Bete Noire and the Hold On To Your Face Wall.

Getting There 

From the main parking area hike back down the road to the main cliff, then follow the path around the right buttress.
