An expanse of short but beautiful quartzite. This ribbon of happiness keeps the wanna-be's at bay by it's approach. It consists of mainly sport routes from 5.7 to 5.12b with edges, sidepulls, and pumpy climbing. The views from here are spectacular, both from the base, but more so from the top of the climbs.
Park at the S-curve. Take the trail to Lake Blanche. Don't cross the bridge, but continue up the faint trail, until you can cut across (right) to a large expanse of talus. Climb this talus attaining slabs that lead to the base of the wall. This talus is probably the worst I have ever encountered in the Wasatch.

Tie Die 5.10b 6a+ 19 VII- E2 5b UT : Wasatch Range : ... : The Millstone
The second bolted line from the start of the slab, Tie Die was a rather easy 5.10. The book calls it a 5.10c, I will drop that down to 5.10b. The lower half was fun and technical. The upper half was easy and lichen covered. Hence the 1 star. Still not a bad route for the Millstone area. The crux wa an awkward sidepull around bolt 2/3....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
