Gate Buttress Area Recreational Lease: Climbs on Church Buttress above vault remain closed MORE INFO >>>


The crux for the route is either the unprotected mantle (cheeks) at the start or the middle of the route. This bolted slab archs up and right past many bolts through a brilliant and clean granite slab. The pitch is interrupted by a ledge with trees, then goes back to clean sweeping granite. There is a second pitch above this with two variations with both ending at the same anchors. You can rap both pitches of this route with a single (60M) rope.


This route is located up the gulley below the fin. If you hike up the gulley directly below "The Gills" and to the right of "Lizard Head Buttress," this is the slab at the very top of the gulley. The start can be recognized by a slab in the trees that has two chickenheads that look like buttcheecks with a bolt above them. The mantle up to the bolt is exposed.


Draws. A #5 camalot is optional if you are scared near the bottom before the bush trees.
