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 pass the foundation on the left and the road makes a right turn. At the turn in the road, park(if you have a low clearance vehicle) or continue up the wash with the Gorilla cliffs on your right and Snakepit on the left. There are several pullouts and a few nice camping spots right in front of the Simian Complex. The Simian Complex is on the right. Short but beautiful steep and orange and gray stripped limestone.

Work up into the overhang and make a few deadpoints to positive holds to reach an orange scoop. Climb up the edge of the scoop to gain a stance and clip the 5th bolt (crux). Continue to the top on sharp holds with good footholds throughout....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
