This wonderful quartzite crag has mostly sport routes, but also the occasional trad and mixed route. All routes are single pitch with a good mix of grades from 5.7 to 5.12, and beautiful views of the High Uintah.
Park at the signed parking area for the trail to Ruth Lake, which is several miles past the top of Baldy Pass. Hike up the good trail to a cairned junction. Take the climber's trail left over some quartzite slabs to a short talus field. No bushwhacking is required, and the approach takes about 20 easy minutes. Good Medicine Wall is the first major wall the trail comes to.

The right of the 2 shorter routes on the main face of Good M.W. Begin on some pretty good jugs in a crack like feature and shoot up and right through cimpers underclings and whatever else you can figure out. There is a pretty good rest just past the 3rd bolt. The nice looking rails in the DARK black streak are sometimes good, sometimes not so good. Fantastic bit of climbing to send this sucker!...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
