A wide wall, with mostly moderates (5.10-ish) on the far left and harder 5.12s to lower 5.13s on the right side of the wall.

The Ruckman guide shows three 5.9 and 5.10 lines on the far left side of the wall. However, since that guidebook was published seven more lines have been added. One is .11d, but most are in the low-to-mid 5.10 range.

Getting There 

Approach per the main page; the wall faces south-east. The right side of the wall has many large, blue mineral deposits on steep, overhanging rock.

Step up on good feet to a disconcertingly thin and flexible flake just before the first bolt. Continue up through a bulge using underclings and sidepulls, with a few pockets thrown in to make it interesting.Positive edges await after the crux with easier climbing to the chains....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
