  • Description 

    There is a massive amount of rock to the East or left of Devils Castle's Apron. Most of it is quite low angle or broken up. This Buttress is an exception. It is a prominent pillar approx. 200m (maybe a bit more!?) to the left of the Devils Castle routes. It gets quite a bit of afternoon sun, but plan on having weather gear with you as you would for Devil's Castle. The rock is the same limestone found on DC.

    Getting There 

    As for DC, shorter approach time as it is pretty much directly above the Albion Basin campground. See photo.

Most loose rock has been cleaned, but approach as you would any climb up at Devil's Castle and wear helmets and climb cautiously.Pitch #1: Starts just to the right (west) of a large low angle gully. Some dirty or broken up sections down low lead to a cruxy edgy section with very good rock. Climb past abou...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
