Description 

This is a small collection of formations that lie about 1 mile northeast of Belle Campground and 3/4 of a mile due east of the road. Becky's Buttress is the largest formation in the area and recognized as a light-colored buttress partway up a hillside.

The rock quality in this area varies from sharp and grainy to smooth and almost polished, with most being somewhat on the rough side. Routes to do here include Road Dogs (5.7), Becky's Buttress (5.9), Bob (5.10a) and Compromised (5.10d).


Getting There 

Park in a dirt turnout on the west side of the Pinto Basin Road midway between Belle Campground and the intersection with the Sheep Pass Road. Becky's Buttress is directly east of the parking area and can be reached by 20 minutes of easy walking.
