Description 

This area is the section of cliff below the ramp. It is bounded on the left by the dark, normally vegetated, left-facing corner of "Unknown Gully", and is almost 50m high at this point. To the right, is the awesome arete of "New Horizons", and the area continues onto the front face of the ramp.

The Unknown Buttress is host to one of the gorge's most popular E1s: "M1", as well as the classic test piece "Ladder of Desire" (E3 5c).

Getting There 

From the Sea Walls car park walk left and, instead of up the ramp, continue walking around the base. The Unknown Buttress is now on your right
