We were looking for the ultimate offwidth/chimney, but climbed this instead. Loose rock, crux is at the roof and topping out without sending a sandstone salvo down on your belayer. Dirty, wet, and loose.
Not in Glen Canyon Rec Area but not worth making a whole new Utah area. Pretty close by. This route is on the left-hand wall as you walk down Buckskin Gulch. There is a fee required to access this wilderness area (pay at the trailhead), and you gotta pack out your doo-doo. May require several swims, a frigid prospect in winter.
Big pro (see topo). Rap anchors a bit upstream on the rim. Hand-drilled in '97 so...
