Description 

This buttress is full of great moderates! The rock quality is great and it's easily approached. The buttress is naturally divided into two main sections. The slabby eastern section is immediately to the right of the Echove area and Hot Flash. The western part is the area of the primary rappel descent as well as routes such as Under Raps and Country Quencher. This is reached by skirting west near the base of the main wall and climbing some exposed third class to ledges beneath the rap route.

The main descent for routes reaching the top of the buttress is to walk west for about 50 yards and rappel from a large dead tree. The first rappel is long (almost 50 meters). Two more rappels, each less than 25 meters, lead to the ground at the western end of the buttress. Scrambling leads down the slabs to the approach trail.


Getting There 

Strawberry Hill is located up canyon from the First Creek Slabs. Follow a trail up canyon. Look up and left for a pink topped buttress. All routes are accessed from here. The approach takes about 45 minutes.

Pitch 1 - Start in a crack and move up about 30'. Step right and continue up to a huge belay ledge. This pitch has awkward climbing. The lower portion is kinda mossy so expect to get dirty! 80'Pitch 2 - Start in the corner. Pull around the corner and through a roof. This is the crux of the climb. Once through the roof continue up on jugs to webbing. The pro is not obvious through the roof though it's definitely there. 100'Pitch 3 - Climb the face/cracks on great pro.

The approach should be a fair bit longer than that, considering lotta balls is a 45 minutes, and the first creek slabs is about an hour. Give yourself an hour to an hour an a half, depending on your motivation.

Ropes on 1st rap station need replacing. Exposed core,very IR degraded. These ropes extend from tree about 20ft. Two nuts in horizontal as backup. We found one dangling in the air and reset. Replaced worn 'biner with quicklink. Also added quicklink on 3rd rap anchor.
