With sharp rock and handful of moderate quality lines, the Phoenix Buttress is a popular zone for the climbing crowds. Many of the climbs have easy moves off the deck to the first bolt that then gives way to a crux up high. Easy access and a nice setting close to the bank of the Crooked River make this a popular destination in the park
Enter the main area of the park and hike along the river past Asterisk Pass. As the trail turns due south and you pass under tall trees look for a dark band of rock just up to your right off the trail.
