Thirty feet east of The Kitchen
. Multiple routes rating from 5.8 to 5.12 climb up or on either side of an overhanging arete.
The main face of George
(10 feet over from the main arete) hosts several nicely bolted routes that are sure to thrill the intermediate level climber.
All routes feature good bolt anchors at the top.
Hike up the canyon from the main parking lot for about .25 miles. Pass the water house on your right, and after passing The Kitchen
on your right go through the main, green gate.
You will immediately see a short gully to right of the trail that goes up about 25 feet of trail before it hits a large chimney with a giant chockstone placed in it about 20 feet up. George
starts at the arete on the left side of the chimney and includes all of the faces to the east along the craggy face.

Tristan and I would stare at it every time we headed up to the limestone. Finally we decided to just do it. Little hidden jugs appear on the way up to the steep finger crack. The crack itself is clean and takes great small cams. We were laughing at ourselves when we hit the big horn at the end of the steep...[more] Browse More Classics in UT

There is what seems to be a third pitch to Lounge Lizards that it is a pretty stout one more wonder that brings you to the top of the spire. Does anyone know what that is? I can't seem to find it on here.
