UKC Logbook Description
The obvious curving ridge line that is the main feature of Truss Buttress.
Start just left of the foot of the ridge, ascend the ridge using cracks until the angle eases (Possible Belay). Continue up a small slab and then ascend the grooves, ribs and ledges of the upper section with increasing ease to belay at the top.
