Featured Route For Left Hand Fork
Pawel is just leaving the "cave" at about half height. The "cave" is just out of the picture but is directly down and left of the bolt clipped at his waist. This section can catch you off guard. From here to the top is really where this route gets good.

The Power of Silence 5.12d 7c 28 IX 28 E6 6b  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Hardware Wall

Crux may be pulling onto the less than vertical section, though not one move in particular felt like a hard 12.Number 1 reason to do this route: There's a cave about 2/3 up the route. Hang out there for as long as you can before your belayer rips you out of it. The rock up high is phenomenal! ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
