This area is composed of the long two (or more in spots) tiered quartzite cliff band that overlooks Ogden from the east. The canyon to its north is Ogden Canyon; the canyon to its south is Taylor Canyon. All the walls in this area face west, so they bask in the sun in the afternoon and evening. The mornings are shady. The alcove is one exception, it faces NW and sees more shade than the other walls. This has been a nice quiet place to climb in the past. The somewhat long steep approach, wasps and rattlesnakes are enough to deter many a weak willed climber. It is slowly becoming more often visited though. Most of the routes are sport. There are also a good amount of trad routes.
To get to the northern walls (The Ramp Routes, Asbury Park, and The Basement): Go to 22nd street in Ogden and follow it east. The road ends at a parking lot (cars are commonly broken into here, usually via a closed window, so I would advise you not to leave valuables in your vehicle). The trail starts at the northeast corner of the parking lot. Follow a maze of mountain bike trails east to the Bonneville Shoreline trail. Follow this trail for a couple minutes as it bends to the south. A climbers trail will break off left straight up the hill. This leads to the base of a grassy ramp. Hike up this ramp to the south. You will soon arrive at The Ramp Routes and farther up you will find Asbury Park and The Basement.

Tree Crack 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ 22 E3 5c UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Tree Crack Area
This route has several cruxes: The first technical crux comes down low with awkward jams and wired body positioning. The upper crux is just a matter of endurance and being able to read it correctly. Good footwork is key as the surrounding wall is slick as piss (like the rest of Schoolroom). I wonder if Greg had fixed gear or if he placed it while leading? Either way a very impressive send for the era....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
