Art Major Wall Rock Climbing
Art Major wall has trad routes that are in a shady gully, hidden from the road and the ominous sounds of the city. It is cool in the summer and wet in the spring. There are no anchors, so bring your slings and gear. Also, there is no easy descent. One can downclimb to the east or head NW to the other side of the gully and come down east on the north side of the gully. Watch the debris from UP&L.
This is on the north-east side of the Aquaduct Wall. Park just down canyon from dogwood (1.0 miles from the sign) at a gravelly pull out. Head up the trail to the nw. 2 options exist from here, 1) switchback (3) to the Aquaduct wall and then head east around the wall doing some 4th class scrambling to gain the top of the ledges where the aquaduct used to be. Hike along this "trail" till it drops off then look left and you'll see the gully. 2) Head east of the Aquaduct Wall, bushwacking and fighting your way into the debris piles until you reach the gully on your left.

This is the right-most line that leads to the only bolt on this wall. It follows right-trending weaknesses to this bolt. This is a pumpy climb with no rests. What looks like good holds from below turn out to be bad slopers. All in all this is a very good climb with solid rock that will leave your forearms begging for more oxygen....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
