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


A shady zone with a few classic problems, some moderate, and a couple obscure problems to round it out. Definitely a worthy bouldering area to spend some time ticking some fun classics. Problems range from V0 to Vhard with the majority in the moderate range. Good landings abound, but a few sport testy landings that can be taken care of with proper pad placement.

Getting There 

The Glen is about a half mile up the road from the gate buttress parking lot, and a hundred yards up canyon from the "Stick Boulder". Park on the south side of the road just uphill from a nice roadside boulder. There will be an electrical box 70ft up canyon from a boulder that has been quarried. A trail starts by the quarried boulder, and another by the electric box. The main area sits behind the quarried boulder.

A classic of the grade! Start sitting or with the hover butt. Left hand on a side pull right on either the gaston on the arete or the jug to the right. Move up the arete gain the jug under the lip, and move left. A nice mantle finishes up an awesome problem....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah

I went to check out this area today (8/17) and noticed a fairly new "No Trespassing" sign right at the bottom of the trail (North side of the road). Does anyone have further info on this? I adhered to the request and ended up back down at 5-mile. Thanks!
