As the name implies, the Lonesome Buttress is not a bustling crag. The rock is solid quartzite typical of the Standard Ridge Area, but there are still lots of loose sections that have yet to be cleaned (choss, lichen, moss and vegetation). Expect similar conditions (sun, shade and wind) that you would find at Narcolepsy. Established routes and unexplored rock are moderate in nature, but be prepared for adventure climbing.

Getting There 

Approach as for Narcolepsy, continue up the East side of that area (top-roper trail) and then head up the steep talus (read: difficult) to the buttress with the obvious dihedral. Adds about 15 minutes to the Narcolepsy approach.

Face climb to a flake with a small bulge that may be easier (and less scary) now that the choss has been cleaned. Another fist crack variation exists on the right face he...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
