Description 

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.


Getting There 

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.

Dirty Pool 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a  CO : Georgetown : The Georgetown Buttress
DP, aka the Koleen Brooks Memorial Strip, is a long route with a number of cruxy sections. Probably no single move ticks in at 5.12, but continuity probably brings it up to that level. Climbing is on largely very good granite. The line is west-facing, gets good afternoon sun, and can be climbed most of the year....[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
