The Pedestal Buttress is a 50 foot high buttress containing arount 20 very good climbs that are easily accessed. Routes like Birch Tree Crack (5.8) and Upper Diagonal (5.9) see a lot of traffic, and there's even a two-pitch climb, The Pedestal (5.4), that's great for practicing a lead traverse. This is another wall that will fill up by 9am on the weekends, so get here early.

Getting There 

To get to the Pedestal Buttress hike the CCC Trail to "T" in the trail at The Monster. Turn left at The Monster and continue up (northwest) until you reach a second "T". Straight ahead is Pedestal Buttress.

Flake Route 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ E3 5b PG13  WI : Devil's Lake : ... : Pedestal Buttress
Flake Route is the quintessential Devil's Lake climb--thin technical crimping on a vertical face. Start up the center of "Campus Wall" directly underneath the alcove on Upper Diagonal. Climb straight up to the alcove, where you will find a fixed pin and a sneaky no-hands rest. Next, cast right and up, following small square cut crimpers up the center of the wall.This climb is actually better protected than it looks if you place gear (.5 and .75 Camalots) on Upper-D, a few feet above the alcove. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in WI
