Hike 200 yards up a gently sloping, well-maintained trail to Lisa Falls Buttress. Cross the stream and continue west then north along a faint bushy trail to reach Lisa Falls West. Cross the stream and scramble 100 yards up a steep trail (just left of the waterfall) to reach Freedom Wall.
This is a beautiful area frequented by hikers and climbers. Many routes are in the shade at various times of the day. The nearby flowing water also cools the area. All the fixed anchors are relatively new and of high quality. Routes are clustered in 3 distinct areas.
These slabs are particularly well-suited to beginner climbers or those just looking for a casual jaunt up the rock while being surrounded by the beauty of trees and a nearby waterfall. The routes here are among the easiest on the difficulty scale. Beginner climbers are cautioned to pay close attention to the protection rating for individual routes, as a few are runout.
3rd Class scrambling is required left of the waterfall to approach this area. It will not faze most climbers. Exercise care, particularly during periods of high water flow. This wall is steep and features cracks and holds that continuously diagonal right/up. The wall faces east and is located in a relatively narrow slot that remains shady for most of the day.
After the slab scramble on the right of the stream, you can cross over to the left again. Hike past a boulder and the first line of bolts (3) are this climb. Steep climbing and funky moves are the name of the game. Lieback up the diagonalling rows of rock to gain the top. Love that double knob, near the top. Clips seemed to be a little strenuous, but not too hard. ...[more]Browse More Classics in UT
