Overview
The Grapevine Butrress is a remarkable 800-foot infusion of kinda flakey brown/orange granite amidst some real crumbling choss. It is probably the biggest climbing feature on in the Grand Canyon. The rock quality is not awesome but it was still a good route in a great location. Its wild to see such a big chunk of granite in a canyon dominated by limestone and sandstone.
