The Dylan Wall is the most developed cliff in the San Rafael. It is south-facing and receives sun all day. The routes are mostly in the 5.10 and .11 range, one pitch, and high quality. The hike (for me), was about 45 minutes and extremely enjoyable. The trail is easy to follow, and takes a devious line right of the wall, to break the cliffs in a weak spot out of sight of the parking area.
Just north of the bridge is a road that parallels the river called "Mexican Mountain Road". Turn right onto this a follow it 1.8 miles to the top of a hill after the road leaves the river. Turn left on a track and park at it's end (Once at the plateau below the Dylan Wall look down on the absurdity of your parking lot). Follow the trail down the hill and past some campsites. Eventually climbing up to the chinle and to a notch with a fixed rope on a bolt. Now the right side of the wall should be in front of you.

This discontinuous thin crack is located in the middle of the Dylan Wall. There is a three bolt anchor visible from below at about 80'. To the right is a long sustained crack in a left facing dihedral (Blood on the Tracks). There is a somewhat broken boulder directly behind the route. A pod at 8' takes a #3 Camalot. From there move up the thin crack with good rests to plug gear and ponder your next moves. There were no moves that felt 11c and the route is extremely well protec...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
