  • Description 

    The Resort Buttress is the major feature south of the Wasatch Resort. Some obvious slabs await adventurous climbers. Some of the routes involve grungy approaches and careful rope management. Bring helmets and enjoy.

    Getting There 

    Park at the Grist Mill pullout, 0.55 miles east of the Park & Ride lot. Take the climbers' trail due south to the bike path. Go west 10 steps and continue due south over the pipe to the creekbed. Cross the creekbed and continue on the trail due south and trend left into Goat Gully. Spend a few minutes assessing the approach from the road.

    Please see access note regarding the Wasatch Resort. Make all attempts to use the climber's trails west of most of the homes.
