This is the only "sport" route at Pete's Rock. Climb up an easy vegetated crack to a flake. Reach up for the right-diagonalling crack and continue up to a rest ledge at the first bolt. Pull the small roof to a hidden second bolt. Clip the third bolt under the big roof up top, reach for the jugs and pull up to the anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

Back in the day, each of the "established" routes had a number painted at the bottom. These numbers were assigned based upon difficulty, with 1 being the easiest, and 15 being the most difficult. From left to right, this is the order: 14 2 9 8 1 4 3 10 11 12 13 15 7 6. The boulder traverse starts at the base of 4 and finishes past the base of 6. Now that the painted numbers are gone, it is difficult to determine what is what, but it looks more natural.

Loved this place!

Close to the parking lot, easy/safe to set up a top rope, at least one good climb available for beginners like my son and I. Nice view. We loved it!
