Buttress of Cracks Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Buttress of Cracks is the lowest cliff band on Suicide Rock, and is the first section of rock you encounter on the approach trail, near the cliff’s far right side. From where the approach trail meets the base of the rock, head left along the base of the Buttress of Cracks; a short uphill scramble (3rd class) leads to a small, flat spot near the left end of the Buttress (The Pirate, a very thin, straight crack, is located here). Insomnia and the immense Sunshine Face are just a short distance farther along the trail (see Suicide Rock Overview map)."
