This section covers the multiple buttresses on the southern (sunny side) of the gorge from the Duck Reach Swing bridge upstream to Ramona Buttress. This area arguably has the highest concentration of easily accessible, high quality routes in the gorge.

These areas are also covered in McMahon and Narkowicz's South Esk guidebook.
