About Green Giant Buttress:

Just another of the several major walls in the Darrington area, including Exfoliation dome and 3 O'Clock Rock. Great granite slab climbing! It's like a mini-squamish... almost. =)
Nearest town or city: Darrington
Directions: From I-5 near Arlington,WA, exit onto WA 530 and drive 32 mi E to Darrington. From Darrington turn right on Mountain Loop Hwy and drive 2.9 mi to road 2060; turn right on road 2060, keeping to the right when it Ys at 5.5 miles. At -7.8 mi, park the car (1,865ft elev). Hike rest of road, which quickly deteriorates to a trail for about a mile then cross a creek and try to find a path through the brush until able to traverse left (west) thru boulder field. Follow path along north bank of Copper Creek to base of a series of waterfalls. Find and ascend a dry creekbed leading north through a brushy section to the base of Green Giant Buttress (2,900ft).
