Just curious as to the origin of the route names, as Casey Heyer (author of the Logan guidebook) listed these as unnamed.
I made the kairns on the trail, which is the easier, albeit longer, approach. Hiking the cliff/chauce pile under the wall is probably harder than any of the routes at the crag.

|Does anyone know of any recent access issues for this area? We went up to check it out yesterday for the first time. The maps and info available were spot on. There is a large gate blocking the trail that cuts back up from the main trail with a sign saying no trespassing no public access and several no trespassing signs throughout. There were several people out and about on the trails though. Fun little area though.|

This wall is officially called The Waterfront--named for its location on the shores of the ancient Lake Bonneville. The routes were established by Eric Newell, Whitney Leary, and Marcus Kranz in August 1999. My wife was pregnant and due to deliver our twins any day--so I had to stay within cell phone range while I set anchors . I found this wall while looking for a good place to take youth groups climbing. I wanted to be able to run several ropes on moderate routes that were close together and could also be good first leads--that was the purpose of establishing these routes. The flat space at the base is limited however, so its not ideal for groups larger than about 6-8 people
There are three routes total, two lead climbs and a top rope route. All have chain anchors at the top.
The route on the left is Brier Rabbit, 5.9 and has four bolts.
The route in the middle is Petrified, 5.8 and has four bolts.
The route on the right is called Fossilized, 5.7 and is a top rope climb.
