This is a great area to visit, even if you don't climb a single route. The hike is very enjoyable and the views from the top are outstanding. This area gets sun from late morning on. Finding the appropriate descent for the climbs that you intend to do is key. The base of the cliff is fairly undeveloped in terms of trails and the climbs are fairly spaced out.

This is not an area that you would want to bring your dog, as the descent options are not canine friendly.

Getting There 

The approach is similar to the Green Valley Gap. A high clearance vehicle is recommended. From the Green Valley lowest parking area, continue south on the dirt road until you can take the dirt road that ascends the hill just south of the south side of the Green Valley Gap. Follow the road up the hill approximately 1 mile until you can find a place to park. Follow the trail on foot using cairns as your guide. You will pass through 2 boulder gardens before making the final turn up hill to reach the cliff top. It's approximately at 30 minute approach once you leave your vehicle.

Samsara 5.10d 6b+ 21 VII+ E3 5b  UT : Saint George : Zen Wall
If you enjoy 5.10 gear lines, this is the route for you. Samsara climbs a steep crack which grows from fingers, thin hands, hands, fists, and finally off-fists. The starting hand crack is protected by a couple bolts, which leads to the crux off-fingers crack in the overhanging wall. The final crux is in the fist sized finish to the anchors. A few key face holds keeps this at the 5.10 level. (barely) A must do trad line!!!...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

Here is a shot of a cool looking overhanging crack project at Zen Wall. I am guessing it is in the 5.13 range.
