Fifi Buttress is the large formation directly to the west of the Leaning Tower. It is home to a multitude of free and aid routes from seven to ten pitches in length. There are even some one to two pitch free routes at the base.
In the late fall and winter time this area gets all day shade. For a good part of the year it gets afternoon sun around 1:30 or 2pm similar to the Leaning Tower.

Park in the Bridalveil Falls parking lot. Hike out from the south side of the lot. (To the right of the bathrooms). Head into the trees staying right/west of the talus feild. You should pick up a climber trail fairly quickly. Follow this as it gains elevation and eventually joins with a stream bed. Follow the stream bed until you see a large boulder on the left. Take the right side of the stream bed up a hill and then cut back across the drainage to the base of the wall. There is a large ramp, mostly 3rd class that cuts across the wall. This will lead to Voyager, The Vortex, Romuland Freebird, Final Frontier and other routes.
Approach takes about 45 mintues.
