A fairly easy climb with plenty of good hand and footholds. The crux can be tricky if you are not positioned correctly. The top is solid and a great place to rest. From the top you can move on to other climbs.

Getting There

Once you arrive at the base of The Ledge, look to your right. There is a big bulge of rock with a split going up the left side and one split going up the center. The split going up the left side is Buttermilk Delight. The split going up the center is Short Stack. If you walk further than this bulge of rock, you find there is nothing else to climb.

Route Description

Buttermilk Delight has a big split on the left where two sections of rock meet. You have plenty of foot and handholds to work with. The crux is close to the top, but once over it, you have an easy climb to the stable top.

Essential Gear

No essential gear needed past shoes, harness and chalk. There are no anchors or bolts, so you can't sport climb or trad climb unless you set up your own anchor.
