Mt. Meeker’s Flying Buttress is a classic of Rocky Mountain National Park alpine climbing. With 6-pitches going up to 5.10a, this is a climb for those who are willing to take a burly, long, and exposed route with serious fun climbing. The line follows a narrow buttress that flies up Meeker’s North Face and features a number of face, crack, and dihedral moves to reach Meeker’s summit. This extra-long day features tough climbing, which will test your alpine skills over a committing and rewarding line. It is not a climb to be taken lightly and demands prior experience.
