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


This is the first route protected entirely with glue in's in Little Cottonwood Canyon. This route is also at the top of the gulley to the west of Lizard Head Buttress and directly below "The Gills." This route is left of "Fish For Brains" and about 30 feet above the trees. You need to scramble fifth class cracks to get to the base of this route. You will recognize this as a clean slab with glue in protection. Don't mistake this its a glue-in sporty 5.12 neighbor to the east. There is one fixed piton on this route. The crux of this great pitch is avoiding hucking your carcass into the wide crack to the left instead of staying on the slab and charging for the anchors.


At the top of the gulley below the fin


All Draws, one rope.
