Description 

The Pile is a very popular sport climbing crag that is shaded in the summer, next to a pleasant stream, and just a few steps from the highway. There are about 6 bolted routes from 5.10a to 5.12b on the east-facing wall across the stream.


Getting There 

From the digital sign at the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon, drive 4.25 miles up canyon until the very obvious S-Curve in the road. There is a small parking lot and also room to park along the side of the road. The Pile is the closest of the several crags near the S-Curve. Be careful of oncoming traffic when you cross the street to the north. Follow the Hidden Falls trail along a small stream for about 50 feet. Cross the stream to the west to find the routes.

Featured Route For S-Curve - The Pile
Summer 2008.  One of hundreds of laps I have done on this great training route.

Right Pile 5.11d 7a 24 VIII E5 6a  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : S-Curve - The Pile
One of BCC's best fitness routes, and a great intro to steep climbing. Many a climber's first 5.11d. The rock isn't the best, but for a quick pump it's hard to beat. Better early before the sun and late when the sun is to the west. Often twenty degrees cooler than the S-Curves....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
