Description 

This is a fairly short wall with a handful of nice climbs.

Getting There 

The approach is the same for most of the Utah Hills areas. Drive along the road until you can't go any further with a 2WD vehicle (11/11). At the point where the road turns right, find a place to park. Continue up the wash straight where the road turns right. The Gorilla Wall will be immediately on your right and the Snakepit will be on your left. Continue walking up the wash and the Simian Complex is the next wall on your right after the Gorilla Wall.

This routes has great sequences! You might want to stick clip the first bolt as it protects the crux. Start in the orange rock to the right of the line. Climb up using crimps and layback edges (crux), until you can traverse above the first bolt to reach the 2nd. From here, it's straight up to a bulge and 3rd bolt. Pull the bulge on the left and move back right to the anchors. For only 3 bolts, they are exactly where you want them. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
