This is a prominent buttress, just west of the Amphitheater. 2 very nice multi-pitch routes go up the buttress, and more lurk around the corner, uphill.
Follow the approach for North Cheyenne Canyon, using the parking area 0.85 miles after the canyon begins. Approach as for the Amphitheater. As the steep gully splits right to go into the amphitheater, look for a faint trail, going west along the base of a cliff. Follow this trail up a steep hill, using switchbacks and whatever else occasions itself. Look for a fairly large tree on a ledge that marks the start of the 2 routes on the buttress. You beneath the tree to the west and cut back to the east in some bushes to the start of the ledge that will take you up to the tree. Continue uphill for more routes.
