The Triple Buttress Area is comprised of three distinct walls offering high quality routes and shade most of the day. Buttresses one and three have a couple of routes each that are worth checking out but the Bond Buttress (middle of the three) is stacked with high quality routes from short single pitches to four pitch rim routes!
Drive approximately 1.3 miles up the canyon from Potash Rd. and park on the left. Hike up a faint trail with cairns to Buttress One. Head right near the base to reach the other two buttresses.
