Mostly shady wall with a route selection slightly harder than Hardware Wall. A Worthwhile crag, on average this is probably less crowded than Hardware Wall.

Getting There 

This is the obvious blue streaked wall on the river about 0.5 miles before Hardware Wall. There are some rock bridges to help get you across the water, but they can get fairly sketchy. Might be easier to just brave the chilly creek water. The hike in is less than 5 minutes.

Sans Nom 5.12d 7c 28 IX 28 E6 6b  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Blacksmith Left
Excellent. This starts in an obvious corner with laybacks and tension movements to a shake out above the dihedral section. The crux lurks around the long chain draw and pulls small crimps with smaller feet. A longer pull to a hold under the roof, then naviage the roof and finish in the in dihedral. Trad climbers often find this to be an easier route. This route has gotten harder due to holds breaking and being shot off by rednecks. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
