This prominent 1,000-foot-high buttress separates the Northwest Recess and the West Face Bulge. The long, moderate classic White Maiden’s Walkway starts on the left side of the Maiden Buttress and ascends the buttress to the top of the rock. The Illegitimate climbs the left side of the Maiden Buttress, joining White Maiden’s Walkway about halfway up the cliff. Several one-pitch slab routes are located on the left side of the toe of the buttress, known as the White Maiden’s Apron, and several steep and difficult one-pitch routes are located on the lower right side of the Maiden Buttress, facing Lunch Rock. The Maiden Buttress can be seen as the left edge of the rock when viewed from Lunch Rock
