Just west of Kermit's Wall/Perhaps Area is another section of cliffs called The Waterfront. Home to black streaked rock galore, The Waterfront boasts several bolted slab routes along with steep and difficult cracks. Not nearly as popular as Green A area's, The Waterfront is a nice locale to beat the crowds.
Park as for the Gate Buttress, and hike past the Tower Boulder. Continue through the talus field, angling up and west. Look for cairns as they are present. After the talus field ends, find the soft trail through the trees and bushes to the base of the Waterfront.

As you head west underneath the Waterfront, you will come to an obvious gully with black streaked rock, and a roof above a ledge. In this gully on the left wall are 3 routes. This is the left bolted line. It starts in a groove system with a bit of crack work, and then it enters a ladder of chickenheads. Good moves, excellent balance required. Consistently hard climbing forces you to rest stances which luckily can be had. The line is funky, but who said chickenheads had to be in a straight ...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
