Amphitheater Mountain, Sunday Morning Buttress. On July 27 Don Monk and I did a short climb on this buttress located one mile northeast of the summit. It is prominent from Cathedral Pass. The route begins on the left of a 50-foot pillar and continues straight up for three pitches. The middle pitch was the crux. The rock was not as good as it appeared (II, 5.10). We also did the Middle Finger Buttress free. The first pitches are some of the most spectacular in the area (5.10).
