Description 

Cool due to the higher elevations, definitely secluded, and some of the best granite (!) I have ever climbed on in the Wasatch. Lots of room for more, but one draw back from my perspective is length (read short).


Getting There 

Drive to the Brighton Ski Area, park in the huge parking lot on the far east end. The wall is visible from here. Here it gets tricky because one needs to follow a road (closed to regular traffic) and pass through a girl scout camp. Respect their privacy. The leaders will usually request climbers to bypass the trails where the scouts are currently located. A friendly pleasant attitude always helps!

Aim for the scree field left (east) edge where you can walk up old steep worn game or hiker trails. Some boulder hopping may be encountered. If somewhat "lost", the approach will require 30 minutes. Once you have it down, 10 minutes should do it! Aim for the "bigger" cliffs that are visible from parking lot. the exploration is half the fun, anyway.
Room for lots more fun!

Go directly between the LDS Girls Camp and the Girl Scout Camp. Head due east. As mentioned above, skirt the talus on the left (more like boulders than talas) or hop up the boulders if you wish. You'll actually come to a "main" looking wall. There are some trad climbs and an OLD school bolted route (I wouldn't trust the anchors) on the first north-facing wall. The climbs mentioned on here are actually further south and east facing. Hopefully this helps get you there quicker. It is NOT a 10 minute approach. It will take you longer than that just to come back down.

Are these the cliffs in Mary Chutes, or right below lake mary?

These are below Lake Mary, and perhaps a decent distance below.

The approach is not straight forward if you are intercepted by the girls' camp's counselors. We were about to set foot in the woods when a counselor redirected us. Not entirely sure where to go, we ended up going far east, up a ski run, and then iso-lining back to the cliff.

If you take that route, you'll be bushwhacking. You want a narrow, talus gulley.

If you can hop into the woods below the girls' camp and shoot straight up, you can avoid a decent amount of bushwhacking but it will still be had.

A clear trail or knowledge of the camp boundaries would be instrumental in making this a more worthy location.
