Description 

Expedited Buttress is a small buttress way up Spring Creek by the Expedition Buttress. Unlike its neighbor, this crag is much more accessible and easier to do with time limitations. Currently, there is only one route, but there are several other intriguing lines to be had, trad or sport for those with a bolting kit.

Getting There 

This is the buttress that comes down almost onto the road immediately after the Expedition Buttress and the bridge that crosses Spring Creek. If the Expedition Buttress is at 5.9 miles from the Harmels turn, this is maybe at 6.1 miles, certainly no more.

Climbing Season

For the Gunnison area.
