The geometry is mind boggling.


The Paisano Buttress is located to the right of the Visions Wall. Steep, overhanging rock is the dominant feature. The hardest routes at the Aretes are on this wall. Currently there are several 5.13's and 3 5.14a's. Please do not take the fixed draws!

Getting There 

Walk left off the road and follow the trail. Take the right fork to the steepest part of the wall.
