A singular formation in the canyon, Drone Wall contains eleven lines (ten routes and a project) that range from 5.7 to 5.14a. The location is pleasant, among trees and close to a stream, but it is also a local party spot and needs cleaning up now and again.
The crag is located up the right fork of Hobble Creek Canyon on Uinta National Forest land. Follow the road past the golf course and bear right at the fork. Note when the Uinta National Forest sign appears. Park at a large turnout on the right, .5 miles past the sign (itís 9.2 miles from the I-15 freeway to the sign). The crag itself isnít visible from the road.

Holy Cow what a route! Only possible if the bees have left...HA! Get it?! Ok...maybe not. Starts just left of the mega project (now sent). And heads up nice big rails/jugs (some with guano close by) into a STEEP section of big holds that you have to commit to with nice dead-pointish moves. Then use the BIG bee hole (if you dare) for your rest before heading into a final hard part (perhaps the crux) as suddenly the holds, while still good, get a lot smaller. You can see most of the route in the ...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
