Description 

The Pedestal Buttress is a 50 foot high buttress containing arount 20 very good climbs that are easily accessed. Routes like Birch Tree Crack (5.8) and Upper Diagonal (5.9) see a lot of traffic, and there's even a two-pitch climb, The Pedestal (5.4), that's great for practicing a lead traverse. This is another wall that will fill up by 9am on the weekends, so get here early.

Getting There 

To get to the Pedestal Buttress hike the CCC Trail to "T" in the trail at The Monster. Turn left at The Monster and continue up (northwest) until you reach a second "T". Straight ahead is Pedestal Buttress.

Congrats is a classic among classics. A striking 5.10 finger crack positioned at the crossroads of climbing on The East - it is the 5.10 to climb at The Lake. Congrats is considered by many to be the bar for 5.10 at Devil's Lake - climb it on TR and you are a 5.10 top-roper, lead it and you are a 5.10 leader.
