Getting There 

Park at the small pullout just past the Hell parking (just past the 11-mile sign).

Walk down the hill to where a pipe used to span the river; cross the river then head immediately left.

Follow the trail past a fire pit and up a talus slope (watch for the subtle right turn).

The Small Wall with three lines is a few minutes up the trail on the left. Continue up the slope passing the left end of Forgotten Trails.

Keep following the well-defined trail up. The Blue Walls are an additional 20 to 25 minutes and are on the right.

Probably about 40 to 45 minutes total.

Under the Knife 5.11d 7a 24 VIII 25 E5 6a  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : The Blue Walls
Tenuous climbing up a sharp, steep wall. The almost featureless terrain and dead vertical face require technique and willpower. Stay on your game for the surprise finish!Getting off the ground is a crux in its own, make a few tedious moves off the start and clip the first two bolts. From here work up and right towards the real crux that follows after a small bulge. Break through the middle ground using tight, thin crimps and delicate edging. A few small pockets offer relief, but most of the work...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
