Please respect this beautiful area. Stay on established trails and do not trample any vegetation


Fun, overly bolted area below Cecret Lake. I have found that most of these climbs are a little easier than their ratings, so it can be a bit of an ego boost.

Rock is similar to the quartzite found in BCC with some areas of non or semi-metamorphosed sandstone. The short approach and cool temps make it super nice. I've never met a crowd, though 2-3 parties would be more than enough to crowd the area.

Getting There 

Hike the Cecret Lake Trail from the very top of Little Cottonwood Canyon. It's the obvious wall to the east of the lake. See GPS coordinates if you're lost, or put them into Google Earth

So many bolts, it can be climbed with one draw, though I don't recommend it. Nothing cruxy and no really hard moves. Rating comes from the FA. I would put it down to roughly 5.9+. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

Every year WASPS build nests on this wall near "Junkhead" and they are aggressive!
