This area was developed by NOLS and has many great Trad lines on it. The buttress is 400 feet and a half hour walk from Scab Creek campground. South facing rock with some good exposure.

Getting There 

From the Scab Creek campground, follow the two track north side of campground, which turns into a trail that leads to a large beave pond. Walk the right side of the pond. walk about half mile and as soon as you notice the trail to head downhill, look left to find a vague trail through some trees. This trail drops into a creek bottom and climbs out of it soon. The trail climbs the hill and gradually turn north. Take this gully until you reach scab creek buttress. Walk can vary from 30 mins to an hour depending...
