This area contains routes on the eastern portion of the Black Peeler Buttress. Routes face southeast, east & northeast.
The “Peeler Face” has historically been the main attraction to this buttress. It is located on the lower southeast face. The rock is mostly steep and featureless, lending itself to aid routes and very technical free routes. The approach is a little steep when you near the base of the wall. But it isn't a very long hike.
The routes further up the hill gradually wrap around to face east and northeast. The approach to these areas is incredibly long and arduous. The soil is loose, vegetation is thick and some routes require 4th Class climbing on a slab to reach their starts.

Cross Little Cottonwood Road and walk northwest up a dirt road until it takes a hairpin turn. Continue west on a trail through the woods until you reach the buttress. Hike northeast along the base of the buttress until you reach your desired route.
This area was mostly developed in the 1980s by a variety of climbers using various tactics.
