Mostly bolted, and nicely angled. The granite here has pockets on most of the face. The climbs tend to be long and feel very exposed. Either do a 2-rope rappel or hike off to the west. A very warm area to climb. The highest of the deep winter crags.
Park in the Little Cottonwood lower canyon Park and Ride. Locate the climber's access trail in the lot's northeast corner (directly north of the restroom).

Have you always thought the Ruckmans were off by 2 pins on the Groovin' topo? Did you traverse right and clipped a 5th piton on the day of the send? Then you're going to have to get back up there since you've finished on Go Van Gogh...
