This is THE CRAG in Logan Canyon! A big steep wall with some of the hardest climbing in all of Utah, including Super Tweak (14b). There are also a few routes for mere mortals who can only do 12s.

This crag is steep and intimidating, and is probably the most obvious wall in the whole canyon.The bolts are plentiful and various linkups criss cross all over the crag. The easiest route on the cave is about 12b (Oboe), but there is a more vertical wall just to the right of the cave that holds several 10s and 11s (and some really hard routes too).

Getting There 

Park at mile 383.4 on the north side right near a bridge. Walk up canyon on a trail for about 5 minutes until you walk under the massive cave.

If you are driving up the canyon and you see China Wall (and you can't miss it), you have gone too far.

Great line on the "slabby" part of the China Wall! Actually, this line is pretty much vertical with sections of gently overhanging stone, so don't expect a slab climb! This route doesn't have many sharp holds - they are pretty kind on the skin. The climbing involves difficult face maneuvers with reachy moves, lots of sidepulls, and tricky feet.Praise the Lowered is well protected but not overly so - you will be pulling some cruxes above bolts - the way God intended them to be done!This is abou...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
