The Georgetown Buttress lies well up the West/North facing hill and is immediately obvious after crossing under the highway. The complex is composed of half a dozen granite crags, some upwards of 160 feet in height. The granite is nearly perfect. The East faces remain shady and are composed of bullet proof edges that are just a kick to climb on. The main west facing crag has several outrageous overhangs, faces, fins, and slabs. Development has just started on this main crag.
From I-70, cross under the highway and follow the road to its end at Main Street. Park off the road at the boulders. The crag looms straight overhead.
