This splitter crack is as good as they get. It is 30 feet left of Crescent Corner, which is excellent, and goes through a roof on fingers, then rattly fingers, thin hands, some jugs, and hands through an overhang. If you get a hot day, this little wall is worthy for this and the two routes to the right of it....[more] Browse More Classics in UT

Where do you approach from for Petrified Hornet Wall?

Approach from the same parking area as Optimator, head up the obvious wash that's down and left of the road, and then you should see another wash/trail heading up and left. There were cairns for at least the upper half.

i usually approach from a small pulloff (i think there are 2 of them) several hundred yards before the optimator parking. this allows you to get down to the wash pretty quickly (and avoid climbing back up to the optimator parking at the end of the day).
once you get in the wash, head up-stream until you find a decent break on the left. follow it up onto the most obvious ridge. there is usually a faint trail on the ridge.
have fun, cool little crag!

And note that the picture of the crag with the routes numbered in the Bloom guidebook is completely wrong. Crescent Crack and Petrified Hornet are about 100 feet apart and right where the trail hits the wall.
