Peter Prandoni, upper crack section of Mississippi...
Poe Buttress is an amazing crag with climbs predominantly in the advanced difficulty range. This crag may contain the highest percentage of classic routes in the area; however, there is little in the low-end difficulty range for beginners here. If you climb here, you will get a workout.
Poe Buttress is located to the West of Cynical Pinnacle & Block Tower. You can approach similarly as for the above, but you must branch off left shortly before Cynical Pinnacle.

From Mike Morin (JeffCo OS ranger): right now the entire area is closed, including the Sunshine Wall, Hall of Mirrors, and Poe Buttress, pending a determination of where the birds nest this year.
