Main Buttress

Currently there are two routes descriptions printed in "Cape Peninsular Select", that of Vertigo (16) and Corridor Heights (15), however in the 1973 Journal there are another 3 lines mentioned but without route descriptions: Cuspidor, Corridor Triangle and Corridor Gable. All three of these routes are on the climbers left of the buttress. From evidence on the wall there are more routes left of these lines, and if you have any more information on these routes please

update this wiki accordingly.
