It should be mentioned that this is called Wild Rose Buttress because of the many wild (and thorny!) rose bushes that guard the base. They are mostly on the left side of the formation, which is also where most of the climbs are. It looked like they were at one point trimmed back, but have since regrown.

I suppose making your rappel into a thicket of rose bushes lends a certain amount of 'character' to the place.
