Little Cottonwood Canyon - Gates Buttress - October 29, 2010

By the afternoon the day was looking nice and most of the snow was gone so we headed up to Little Cottonwood Canyon to checkout the trad climbing there. We headed to the School House are which seemed to have a high concentration of well rated climbs.

We hit up Bushwack Crack, a two pitch 5.8 crack.  Ken lead it and when he got to the anchors he linked up the second pitch.  It would have been an ok 2 pitch climb but as a long full pitch it was awesome.
To get down we rapped over a 5.11, 5.10, and 5.8 so we top roped them quick before the sun disappeared.
