The Compound is a steep, North facing crag with about 20 routes between 5.11 and 5.14.
If you don't have a 4 wheel drive car, park at the top of the groomed Canyon Road near the Right Fork trail and continue up the semi-steep, rough Canyon Road another 15 minutes until you reach a sharp left and then a sharp right turn. After the right turn you will see an obvious trail on your left that leads up a dirt slope. Follow this trail for 5 minutes to the base of the Compound. If you have a 4 wheel drive car, you can drive all the way to the small trail that cuts off the main road.

Grunt past some hard thin moves, and a difficult low clip, and then motor through an endless series of poor holds, and big moves to the top. Some people use kneebars....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
