Summary

Cougar Buttress

Joined our friend Josh in June of 2009 for a day at the Cougar Buttress in central Oregon. We climbed the 4-pitch (done in 2) Cougar Buttress route (5.9). Fun mix of crack and face climbing in a beautiful setting. This was in the middle of our aid climbing season. We also did a couple of single pitch lines at the base to round out the day.
