Description 

The buttress has three tiers and is accessible from Bruces parking lot. Best approached from below via the middle fork trail, but you can also approach from above and descend the tiers. Trad and sport climbs from 5.5 through 5.13

Information I pulled from experience, but most descriptions are from the Lander Rock Guide by Steve Bechtel

Getting There 

From Bruces parking lot choose upper or lower middle fork trail to get to top tier or lower tiers.
