Leaning Buttress Crack


Follows the wide, blocky corner just right of Leaning Buttress. Beginning up a tricky fin, a mantle leads to a ledge. Continue right along the corner of the detached buttress (it's possible to climb behind it!) and reach the top with ease via a hand crack/bridging. Fun solo, toprope, or first lead.


Right side of the obvious pillar of Leaning Buttress. Walk off right of Flying Buttress.


More pro than you can shake a stick at, though most of it is to one side of the climb or the other.
