The Resort Buttress is the major feature south of the Wasatch Resort. Some obvious slabs await adventurous climbers. Some of the routes involve grungy approaches and careful rope management. Bring helmets and enjoy.
Park at the Grist Mill pullout, 0.55 miles east of the Park & Ride lot. Take the climbers' trail due south to the bike path. Go west 10 steps and continue due south over the pipe to the creekbed.
