A largely undeveloped crag on the left side of Hayden Peak west face with enough stacked, loose rock and lichen to deter all but the most jaded choss bolters.

Getting There 

Find your way up to the Iron Hayden Wall. A climbers trail exists just to the east of the Highline trail parking lot. Follow this trail until you get to the base of the main wall then traverse along the base heading north until the way is blocked by a short rocky ridge. Descend a short distance and continue traversing the base of a short wall until you are in the Hayden Couloir. Cross the couloir and locate the obvious skyline arete. Scramble up to the base of the arete. Expect a 1 hour and 25 minute approach if you find and stay on the trail.

Established in 2008 in ground-up style with no bolts. Although the experience was very satisfying, the end product was a poorly protected route that none of us wanted to climb again. Subsequent ascents have seen the addition of several lead bolts as well as anchor bolts making for a fun and well protected climb in a very exposed position. It is often windy in this area.Pitch 1: Begin off a boulder at the base of the route. Climb up and left following 3 bolts and into a right facing corner...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
