This is a nice place to climb some high quality moderates on good quality limestone. Fairly short approach when compared to the walk to the Cathedral. The approach time is approximately 20 minutes.
Same driving directions as for the Cathedral, Wailing Wall, Basilica, and Logan Crag. From the cow pens, hike along the stream bed under large cottonwood trees. After about 10 minutes, you will pass the Logan Crag on your right. Shortly after passing this crag, take a left and head up the wash toward the Sumo Wall and the rest of the Welcome Springs crags. Look for the first prominent rock wall on the left, this is the Sumo Wall. To be sure...look for the face at the base of the wall. The approach trail is hidden somewhat behind a large boulder on the left.

A fun two move wonder. Start on the right side of the cave/sumo's mouth. Climb ramp up to second bolt. Stem wide and pull the first hard move to get to the left angling rail above the cave. Hand over hand across the rail until you can insert yourself into the sumo's nostril and cop a rest. One more hard reachy move past the forth/fifth bolt gains a ledge, then fun 5.9 pockets to the top. A little less sharp than some of the other routes....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
