The Syringe Buttress is the southern-most formation of the main Ibex cliff system. It gets its name from a prominent feature that looks like a syringe sticking out of the ground. The rock quartzite here is some of the best quality in the area. The south side is sunnier for most of the day, and is further from the sounds of generators and ATVs. The east face is in the shade by early afternoon. You won't be disappointed.

Getting There 

Park just off the dirt road at the edge of the hardpan. Walk five minutes up to the bottom of the buttress.

P1 starts with clipping a bolt and then some sinker hand jams for a few moves to gain a small bulge. Traverse left and onto the arete with a fun, defined crux. You can combine P1 with P2, which is bouldery, easy .10 slab and edge climbing up to a nice belay ledge that gets late afternoon shade. P3 has tightly spaced bolts in a shallow dihedral to an arete with a killer sof...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
