This is the large west facing buttress on the east side of the canyon just past the mouth. Look for several snaking dikes capped by a few large roofs. The back and sides of the buttress are a walk up/off.

Getting There 

Head east from the parking area up the obvious road into the mouth of West Sawtooth. Look for the buttress on your right just a hundred yards or less into the canyon.

There is a 2 or 3 pitch route that climbs up into the maw under the big roof that was pretty fun. Starts left of candyland. Bolts appeared where you needed them. It was the first route my friends and I climbed out there. It was a decade before mountain project so there was plenty of climbing into the unknown. Such a pretty place especially for climbers.

There are a couple of bolts that intersect Candyland about 2/3 of the way up. They follow another quartz dike from the left side but I have no idea where the start is. An adventure route for sure.
