This a very fun crag filled with well bolted moderate sport routes just up the road from Stone Garden. The wall ranges from slabby to vertical with various bulges and small roofs. The left side is short, the right side is tall with climbs looking to be about 70 feet or so. Even though I was told it's called the Mosquito Wall, we only tussled with one mosquito the day we were there.

From the Stone Garden pullout with the big rock, go to the very next pullout on the right hand side (if you are heading north). It's large and not very far up. Get out of you car and cross the street looking for the cement culvert on the west side of the road. 100 feet past the culvert, on the west side of the road, you will see a cairn marking the start of the trail. Follow cairns through the trees to the crag. It's about a 10 minute hike.
This route was bolted with the beginning leader in mind. Still, you have to think about the feet a time or two and it has mantle in the middle and easier finish than the route to the left of it....[more]Browse More Classics in UT
Climbed here last week. Looks like a nice family crag with lots of easy route for the beginners and a couple of somewhat challenging climbs. Not sure what I climbed here. I started on the right side of the crag and worked my way left starting with the route with the 2nd bolt just above a roof, was fun climbing. Then climbed the route that starts on the left side of the big roof (classic stone garden boulder problem starting with a roof), and the one just left of that. For the most part was good rock with some lichen. I climbed the longest routes here and there is nothing taller than 50ft for sure. The hardest climb here is probably 10+ (I'm guessing) and the shortest approach in the Uintas. I noticed that some obvious cracks lines have been bolted and was kind of offended. Would be nice to have a trad climb here for someone who want to try to place some gear, just a thought (Im not a chopper). If you are new to climbing and want to try lead climbing then this is the place for you, whoever put up this crag had this in mind I bet. If you have done all the warm ups at the Stone Garden and want to try something different, head here first and then go to the Stone Garden (not far from each other). Gets morning sun.
Climbed here on 8/20/11. Fun little area containing mostly beginner to moderate sport routes. A few routes are a bit gritty and/or have thorny bushes on ledges, but most should clean-up with increased traffic. A nice place to warm-up or cool-down at the end of the day or to take beginners to. Mosquitos can be thick at the end of the day on the right-hand side of the cliff line.
