This is the next large buttress to the right of The Shadow Buttress. The rock is a whiter color than most of the rock at Ibex and is generally good, solid quartzite. James Garret's Ibex guidebook lists only 2 routes on this wall, but a few more have been added over the years on the right side of the buttress.

Getting There 

Park somewhere convenient and hike up. Less than 5 minutes.

A trail, marked at the beginning by rock cairns has been constructed/made, hopeflly to decrease erosion and encourage people to take the same path to the foot of the crags. This remains a fragile environment. Thankyou for using and your help maintaining these various trails at the Ibex crags
