Description 

West facing wall up above the water tank at the beginning of Logan Canyon. Easy wall for beginners. Is west facing so you get some decent sun in the afternoon; however, there is a good ledge to belay behind to get some shade in the evening for all three climbs. :)

Getting There 

Cruise up Logan Canyon about 0.6 miles from the first dam bridge. Park on the right side of the road at the Nature Center pull off. Cross the road/ bridge to the dirt road that goes up toward the water tank. (At the beginning is a descent overhang bouldering) Follow the dirt road for about 10-15 min until you get to a small hidden sketchy trail (marked by piled rocks) on the right that goes up a semi steep hill into the trees; follow this trail across the hillside up to the only decent cliff on that hillside. (approx. 5 min). Or you can follow the dirt road up to about 150 ft. before the water tower and traverse up the loose rocks to the cliff that is partially visible. :)

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.
