ummm...just a shot of the SE face


The Aqueduct Area is south-east and south-west facing with a 10-minute approach just down from Dogwood. A few bolted routes and a few trad routes are here for the picking with ratings of 5.8 to 5.12. 2 bolt anchors are present for all the climbs.

Getting There 

Just before reaching Dogwood, on the left is a pull-out with a lot of loose gravel. Hike up the trail to the NW, up a steep dirt hill, continue past 2 small switchbacks, loose rock, and aquaduct debris (Thanks UP&L). The SW face can be reached by scrambling down and left from the SE face onto a ledge.

Face climb on edges through fractures and broken cracks with great feet. Placing gear is a little pumpy. Don't get sucked left - head up and a little right, intersecting the little roof on the right. Seems like you wind up placing gear at your chest/waist a lot....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
