Creekside Wall, mid-July
Please respect this beautiful area. Stay on established trails and do not trample any vegetation

Description 

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

Girls on Film 5.10+ 6b+ 21 VII+ E3 5b  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Creekside Wall
Good little route with the same kind of cool quartzite features found on the rest of the wall. Very mossy at the top makes the top hardly worth doing. As of 7/24/07, the anchors have only hangers and a couple old carabiners. bring a sling to use at the top until that problem is fixed. The anchors are set behind a lip that causes an incredible amount of drag....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

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