Crag features
This is the subsidiary buttress at the right side of the Waterfall Walls, guarding the eastern side of the narrow valley between the Waterfall Walls and the Great Rock. Although small in comparison to its neighbours, this would be a major crag were it located in the UK. A combination of perfect rock, easy access, mid-length routes, and a straightforward descent have combined to make this buttress one of the most popular crags in the valley for those operating in the middle to upper grades.
