Wind River Wilderness Cragging – A Free Guide to Scab Creek Buttress

Twenty-four miles southeast of Pinedale, Wyoming, tucked just inside of the Wilderness Boundary lies a 120-meter (400-foot) buttress of bombproof Wind River granite. Scab Creek Buttress offers trad climbers a day trip wilderness experience and on most summer days, you’ll have the entire buttress to yourself.

Area Overview

Scab Creek Buttress is home to an assortment of moderately rated multi-pitch traditional routes. Most of these routes offer great protection and easy route finding. The approximately 45-minute hike and concentration of traditional routes effectively fends off crowds, yet the beautiful rock, vistas, and multi-pitch routes are sure to inspire dedicated climbers to venture higher into the Wind River Mountains.
