Description 

Sunny, Easily accessible, high usage area (especially by newbies and guides)

Recently many of the climbs have had anchors placed on the top of them, hopefully this will preserve the trees that have managed to survive the past 20 years of abuse.

First Area developed during the early 80s, location of the first lead (Zag 5.8), the first 5.10 (The Tree Route), first 5.11 (Englishman's Crack), and first 5.12 (Let the Wind Blow)

Getting There 

Heading north from Fayetteville take three rights after going over bridge, cliff is to your north once you pass under bridge

My favorite climb at Bridge Buttress.Start off on a wet jug, move into thin tips laybacking in the buldging corner. At the top of the corner is a slam dunk move out right to a sloper then traverse one move left onto good jugs and place your first pro(17ft). The crux is next and it is pulling out of the mini-roof, a small nut in the bottom finger lock won't get in the way, place it from the good holds below.
