BETA PHOTO: Christmas Crack Overview (North)
This small buttress is situated at left of center at the Stanage Popular area. It is shorter than most of the other buttresses in the area, but Good Friday is a climb well worth seeking out.
Walk up from the Hook's Parking area, and keep walking along the edge until you reach this area after about 10 minutes.

Tricky, tenuous, but interesting climbing up a giant, left-facing flake forming an OW against main wall. Protection is marginal without huge cams (> #4 Camelot), so can be a bit spooky, especially since crux section is down low.Climb the flake up and right to gain a vertical wall on the left with ledgey breaks, good grit slopers, and better gear. Crux comes in middle of flake after a good resting stance....[more] Browse More Classics in International

First time I've seen this area called "Boot Buttress" - if you call it "Inverted V Area" it would be understood.
