A great crag for hot afternoons, Visionary Wall is in a steep, east-facing gully with the routes on the north-facing wall of the gully. This, combined with many trees allows for shade most of the day. Add a nearby stream that runs for most of the spring and summer, and this crag is a pleasant location.
The routes are mostly steep, fairly tricky affairs with none of the standard American Fork pockets and lots of devious edges.
Walk up Tank Canyon and follow the trail on the east (right) of the streambed. The trail will cross the streambed heading north and then immediately turn east (right). Continue following the trail through a grove of evergreens and then step over some tree roots and a short steep section to walk to the left of the stream.
The trail (and stream) turns north again (left); follow the trail past two gullies on the left. Just before the third gully a bolted route will appear on a limestone outcropping that almost reaches to the streambed. This is the first route. Look up the gully and you'll see constructed belay landings.
About a 12-minute walk.

A wonderful stemming problem in an overhanging corner.Start up through the dusty beginning using small feet and lieback handholds where the thin corner crack opens up enough to accept fingertips. Delicate stemming with a big move or two is required to the fourth bolt (getting to the fourth bolt is a relief—it feels like a long way from the third). At this point the angle eases a bit and the holds get bigger. Continue up and stand atop a ledge on the left, then finish with the last eight or ten f...[more] Browse More Classics in UT

There is at least one rattle snake living at this wall. We encountered it in the logs (of the ledge) just west (uphill) of Tank Trap (route). Please be very aware as you belay here and maybe wear a few pairs of shin guards ;)

Fantastic Wall! Good shade...enjoy it now before the word gets out. The landings were really appreciated (thanks to whomever did all the work). But a better trail up the gully would be a good idea.
