Description 

Previously known as Agony Buttress, Primitive Buttress lies back in the woods and has a bunch of additions to it in the new 2012 Farris guidebook. Grades range from easy all the way to 5.11. It is well shaded when the trees have leaves on them and it doesn't see tons of traffic.

Getting There 

Follow the paved trail north from the southern parking lot and take a left at the path by the outhouse. Once it takes you into the woods, take a right on the path and Agony Buttress will be on your left in about thirty seconds. Look for the giant roof on Death Scream.

Five feet right of Death Scream, go straight up. Once you make it to the roof systems, enter the corner system to the climber's right rather than left as you would for Death Scream. Enter this crux section and hope that you find some holds to get through it. They are there, you just have to find them. There are some cool side-pulls and crimps to be found. Make some big moves from here and go straight up....[more]   Browse More Classics in MN
