This detached buttress provides good shade and some good rock that is worth warming up on before scrambling up to the main ledge below God Knows. Some warms ups are set and there are numerous other options that can be climbed here. Cherub is also a nice staging area for the final scramble up to The Face of God Area.

Getting There
