Description 

A relatively easy area, with mainly trad routes. Some protect well, others don't. If you are looking for an alternate spot to climb when Schoolroom is busy, come here. The rock is a little dirtier then the rest of Gate.


Getting There 

Approach as per Schoolroom, and continue east, along the trail which turns into a ledge system.

The Waltz crux is in green.  Fun liebacking sequence that my wife loved.

Waltz, The 5.6 4c 14 V S 4b  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Five Fingers Area
An interesting start leads to a an easy wide crack. The start is an undercling that leads to a length of liebacking, along good rock. It then has the odd move as you work from one wide crack to another. Finally, after you pass a slung tree and horn, you come to a divergence: a really steep offwidth/squeeze on the right or an easy wide crack to the left. The climb goes left. I tried right but the rock was rotten. All in all a nice lower sequence followed by an easy upper sequence.WARNING !! ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
