Eagle Buttress and Environs Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Beta shot of the Eagle Buttress area as seen from ...
Big buttress high up in the canyon just east of the Dragon Arch Area
. You should be on your own for the entire day should you make the trek up here.
Rock quality is similar to any other rock this high up the canyon. AKA not great but would clean up if the area got some regular traffic.
Park at the old gritmill a half mile up the canyon and head out to the northwest to a trail heading up the hill. A few switchbacks and some fixed ropes (same approach trail as lots of balls slab?) will get you started, but eventually you will just have to point uphill and thrash your way there. Mission to Moscow
can be seen from the road and provides a viewable goal for the hike.
- Currently it is trespassing to walk through the old gritmill. Please respect the signs and walk around on open land to get to the trail.
Climbing Season For the Little Cottonwood Canyon area.

Mission to Moscow is the obvious right leaning crack. Mostly hands with some funky stemming and chimneying possible to delay the pump. Fight up to the squeeze chimney at the top, bust a move through the steep crack and a 3-bolt anchor awaits.The Mission was thoroughly cleaned in June of 2008 and could use a regular ascent every now and then to keep it in a manageable condition. With the amount of loose rock that was brushed off/fell out of the crack, the star rating should be upped at least ...[more] Browse More Classics in Utah
