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).

Runnel Chunnel 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a UT : Wasatch Range : ... : The Egg
Climbing the west end of The Egg formation “The Runnel” offers some interesting climbing. The crux is avoiding the inordinately large stack of rotten blocks that make up the left edge of the runnel.
