Left End Corners is an excellent outing on the far left side of the second buttress. This can be done at either 5.6 or 5.8, depending on the precise line.

When driving towards the 2nd buttress your eye will be drawn to the huge roof and prominent leftward leaning corner system. Directly below these features is the Sugar Cube an obvious and well named boulder on the crag side of the road. Parking will be apparent. The leftward leaning corner is Angles Away. Directly through the huge roof is the incipient cracks of Roofer Madness. This is an old Rosholt aid climbing test piece. Beginning from the right side of the Angles Away start and S curving around to the left side of the Roofer Madness Roof is the challenging Needs a Bolt. Many other quality routes are to be found all over the 2nd Buttress. Many are yet to be done. If this crag were on the Front Range, there might be a hundred grid bolted routes on it. As it is there is still a bit of wild adventure left out west.
