Gate Buttress Area Recreational Lease: Climbs on Church Buttress above vault remain closed MORE INFO >>>


A short and thuggish jaunt up an overhanging face. Difficult climbing down low to moderate climbing above.


Immediately to the right of the large gully splitting the crag. The first and left-most route on the most prominent wall of the crag.


Three bolts to a single bolt anchor. There's an old and very questionable piton between the final bolts and the chains. Cleaning, at this point, is very problematic given the single bolt at the top.

In its current state, this route is dangerous. The piton protecting the upper portion of the climb is a weak assurance at best, and only usable via an equally sketchy piece of webbing due to placement. There is only a single final bolt which is also quite questionable. I would avoid this route.
