About Ginger Buttress:

On the main face of Rainbow Mountain (not Rainbow Wall) a small black waterstreak is visible just north of center. Look just to the right of this and you can see a prominent buttress jutting up out of the ground. This is the Ginger Buttress.

Approach: As per Crimson, head up toward the giant ramp. Start up the ramp, but just afterwards, step around a large boulder on your left and find a climbers trail heading south into a giant, recessed area with the Ginger Buttress directly ahead. Work your way down and across the slabs to the base of the climb. To approach Unimpeachable Groping and Power Failure, head left around the toe of the buttress and then along the main wall on your right to the climbs.
