Paisano Buttress Rock Climbing
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!
Walk left off the road and follow the trail. Take the right fork to the steepest part of the wall.
