The Flying Buttress

A prominent buttress west of The Amphitheater with two excellent, moderate, multi-pitch lines.

Approach from the base of the steep gully into The Amphitheater, look on the right for a faint trail marked with a cairn.  Hike west on this trail following switchbacks uphill to the base of the buttress.  Scramble east over broken ledges to a pine tree.
