Sun to mid-afternoon

To the right of Apparent North Buttress, the edge diminshes into a series of shorter walls separated by jumbled sections of blocks. The rocks here have been scrambled on for years though the routes were only described for the first time in 1992. More recently the area has become a popular bouldering venue. Guidebook page 190.
