Lemon Resevoir-Transfermation Buttress Rock Climbing
This is the buttress on west side of Florida River downstream from the main West Side climbing area. It is made of granite, and it gets morning sun and afternoon shade.
From the intersection of CR250 and Florida Road (Bread), follow Florida Road east for about 12 miles. Stay left at a signed intersection and continue on CR243 for about 5 more miles to reach a gate at the north end of Lemon Reservoir. Follow signs to Transfer Park Campground, and park at Burnt Timber TH. Hike through the lower campground loop of Transfer Park Campground to the USFS service hut, and cross the meadow heading south. The buttress is right next to the river on your right.
