Description 

As part of this wall is South facing, and part east facing, it tends to get a lot of sun, making it a good fall/winter area. Though there is not a huge selection of routes here, there are a few that are of high quality, one of them being Whale's Back (5.11-), a quality long corner splitter hand crack.


Getting There 

To get there turn off 211 onto the Beef Basin Road (left side of the road past the pond, 8.1 miles beyond newspaper rock). Follow the dirt road past two cattle guards. Do not take the right turn to Bridger Jack camping area, but continue the left trend toward 4x4 wall. At about 2.3 miles past the turn off there will be a parking area on the left side, which is next to a great camping area. Park right around here and to the west you will see the east facing stone that is the east end of technicolor wall.

Looking left of a large pillar, you will see a large hands crack with a huge pod about 15 feet up. This is it. Crux is getting out of the pod and back into the hand crack. Fun climb for those with large hands! People with smaller seem to struggle a bit....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

A partner and I recently looked for the route 'Carruthers' on this wall. We cound not be sure where it was, but found it to be possibly the system just right of 'Whale's Back' that started in a dirty looking slot.
Upon asking other people, both strangers and partners, where it was we found that others also could not find the route.

Has anyone ever climbed this possibly mythical route?
Where is it?

'Where's 'Carruthers'"

Last week I walked back and forth between Whale's Back and Technicolor and couldn't find Carruthers, although Mr. Pink (.11) was put up in that same stretch last Thursday.

I couldn't find it either. Then again I had a hard time finding a few of the routes here. Long way in between routes in the book.

There is a new swithchbacking trail that comes up just left of David and Golaith. It is easiest to park out on the main dirt road, and walk 100 meters or so up the side road to the trail, which is currently marked with a wooden stake.

Go left at the top of the trail for big red and barca lounger. Go right for david, golaith, dusty, whales back, mr. pink and technicolor. You are better off to park all the way up the side road, and walk slightly further up the drainage to the faint trail on the right for golden eye. There is a new marked trail on the left that brings you to the wall with the mongrel and the gash.

There is a good 5.10 right of Goliath with a plaque " Buckaroo Bonsai". I was surprised to not see it here or in the new Creek guide.
