This is the first Buttress, coming from the east. Begin in a gully on the right side of the buttress. A left-diagonaling, 5.7 traverse, leads to a crack system, near the buttress center. Belay from a small pillar, about 30' up the crack. Another pitch, leads to Main Ledge. Walk left to the large corner formed by the side of the buttress. Climb a chimney until it becomes too narrow, then move (5.8) into a thin crack on the left. Pass an overhang and soon belay. Either continue up the corner, or climb a hand crack, to an arete, which leads to a sloping area in a gully. Continue to the top.
