Same parking as Coal Pit Buttress. If you are using the Ruckman guide do not park at the pump house. Park approximately 2.3 miles from the exit of the Park and Ride at a gated dirt road.

Hike down the dirt road to the bridge. Cross the bridge and hike down the trail to two large boulders next to the trail; one has a small point nearly overhanging the trail. I'll try to post a photo of these at some point. DON'T use the small worn trail entering the woods up hill from these boulders; it leads to more boulders. DO use a drainage about 10' downhill of the boulder and head into the woods here. If you have this right stay in the bottom of the drainage trending right. It will get more and more rocky comprised of very white talas as you get closer to commitment buttress. Commitment is the first large slab you encounter on the left.
