This is the northern most area on the South Buttress. These routes are routinely top-roped from the popular tourist overlook. Offering sweeping views of the valley, climbing here gives one a real feeling of exposure, and danger too... There are some MASSIVE loose blocks here and one MUST BE VERY CAREFUL. Entire features are loose. Lead climbing these is really not recommended IMO, if there's any rockfall your belayer will get creamed at the base.

To the climbers right of Passages is a BUS SIZED massive overhanging arete. The WHOLE FEATURE will break off and has moved on climbers previously. We are working with State and town to arrange a time to trundle the feature.

Getting There 

Drive up to the top of the South Buttress and when you get to the overlook with the railing you've made it!
