A small cragging cliff, that is, ehem, west of the river just past the Court of the Patriarchs pulloff. The name of the cliff is taken from Stewart Green's Rock Climbing Utah guidebook.
Drive up the main canyon road toward the Court of Patriarchs. Go just beyond that viewpoint and look for a large, paved pulloff on the west (left) side of the road. There are a couple trails heading down to the river. Cross and look for another faint trail that heads up to the cliff. A horse trail intersects this trail and parallels the river.

A clean crack that requires either fat fingers or small hands. This route is immediately left of the dihedral on the right end of the cliff. A splitter crack up the cliff with the crux (for me at least) coming in the first 10 feet where the crack is off hands, but too big for fingers.Watch out on the exit to the cliff top as there is no pro and the rock is sandy and a little loose. TR and belay from the big tree to the right.The route is enjoyable and definitely worth doing. ...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
