A short, cliff that is moments from The Watchtower. The routes range from 5.7 to 5.12c. Very cool summertime climbing, as is most of Ferguson, running water, and lots of hikers and unleashed dogs. There are 3 faces to this cliff. The steep south face, the extremely easy west face, and the varied north face. Lots of fixed gear; however, bring your gear as the routes may require them, AND some of the fixed gear may be clipped as of this writing, and if not some are suspect.
Approach as per The Watchtower, on the main trail. Look up canyon at the end of The Watchtower, and you will see 2 gullys The left (North) gully has water and the main trail. The Cathedral splits these gullies.

Questionable pins and tricky placements are the highlights of this line. Get out there and test your skills.Start off casual, climbing up steps, cut right and work into the crack system. From here straddle a hanging block, place a piece or just gun it towards the first pin. Cli...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
