The Iron Curtain Wall has some nice well bolted sport routes on good quartzite and a quick approach, though the interstate noise dims the appeal. Still, this is a good place to go get a quick pump.
Take the 3300 South Exit from I-215, and turn east. Continue through the light at Wasatch Blvd, and then bear left at the first intersection. There is a parking area at the end of the road. From here, walk steeply uphill on a dirt road. Turn left onto a trail towards a distinctive boulder just before a building and cell tower. Head east on a path just before the boulder, and hike down the steep trail to the base of the wall. The Iron Curtain Wall is on the left, and the approach takes about 5-10 minutes from the trailhead.
