BETA PHOTO: Aguaworld, as seen from the new approach.


Steep and forgotten, Aguaworld has a lot of good quartzite, pumpy routes, and an odd 5.9. Located near the mouth of the canyon and facing the southwest it has good sun, so pick a cool day or a morning. Most of the routes are bolted, some that aren't are scary.

The new subdivision is killing the original approach.

Getting There 

Park in the pullout next to the brown "No Camping" sign about half a mile up the canyon from the electric sign (just before the bridge). Here, the north slope isn't as steep. Cross the street and follow an established trail that climbs to the west. Eventually, you'll arrive at an old service road at the base of some mine tailings (loose talus). There are some switch backs through the talus that lead to the remnants of the broken aqueduct. Plan for a 15 minute hike. P.S. Bring water, Aguaworld is a misnomer.

Climb the right-facing dihedral and then climb through the headwall in the right crack.

Pipe Dreams 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ E1 5a UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Aguaworld
The initial dihedral doesn't require much strength, just good technique and a whole lot of head. The runout could easily turn into a potential groundfall situation if you pass ANY protection opportunities. It is slopier than it first appears, and the crack you think you can see isn't there at all. Traverse to the crack in the headwall to the right and let the big pulls begin. Place pro before attempting to pull over the lip because blowing the crux here would be bad without it. Have fun fig...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

Approach topo.  Park at the pullout by the bridge.  You can make out a trail that diagonals from the right to the left.  There is a short hike up scree to the aqueduct where the trail peters out.

Ryan's directions are good, but plan on about 10-15 min, not 30.

It's about .6 miles from the electric sign at the parking lot. If you park .5 miles at the brown sign you can get there too, but that path sucks! 10 minute approach. Best path is to climb over the tailings pile and not go around it. Trail puts you right at Smoke Em If You Got Em and Burn Tough.
