This is the lower wall/block on the South/East side of The Overlook. There are three bolted routes on this wall and some nice bouldering to the sides of the routes. Not to be confused with the area called the Underlook which is lower still and a short hike down from the main wall.

Getting There 

Follow directions for accessing The Overlook and South/East side. The Lower Buttress is the obvious block down low below routes Cholla Wall, Holy Wall and Dave's Face.

The right-most bolted route on the Lower Buttress. Slabby, low-angle face climbing to a steep move at the top. A very good beginner sport lead....[more]   Browse More Classics in New Mexico

I think two of these routes were bolted by Clark Mann, from Santa Fe, in about 1991.
