Golden Buttress is directly to your right when first walking into the trees on the deer path. This wall is beautiful the sun hits it all day. It is very clean wall. Very smooth like features with not alot of holds towards the bottom. Much of the holds are crimpers if not slopers. Wonderful views once above the tree line of the river and to get that feeling of climbing above the trees.The buttress is named after its golden color in the sun.

Getting There 

From Positron go into the deer path to the right of the picnic table. Golden Buttress is right to your right.
