Description 

This area lies between Yellow Lichen Buttress and Saturday Buttress and contains several dirty routes in the 5.8-5.9, all of which according to Mike Farris are "not worth doing".

Getting There 

From the parking lot off Rock County 8 take the paved bike and pedestrian path until the cliff line is clearly visible. Take the approach trail that cuts a right angle with the paved trail through the grass to the base of Saturday Buttress and continue to the left to the base of this buttress.

Begin on the third crack from the climber's right (not counting The Klinger) and climb blocky stuff with ease for five to ten feet. Follow the crack and find the crux about 3/4 of the way up. 5.8 seemed like a pretty accurate rating to me, but I've entered the guidebook rating of 5.8+....[more]   Browse More Classics in MN

The guidebook says "dirty and hardly worth doing" before each of these routes, but I think otherwise. If you are looking for moderate trad leads this place has 5 lines!
