Anyone know of a good spot for really easy toproping for little in the Uintas? Doesn't need to be an established climbing area, just somewhere with a base area suitable for little kids (not really bad talus), not a very long approach, where we could set up some super easy TRs for the little people. Any ideas? wilcox510

Just before Bald Mountain Pass from the Kamas side is an overlook pullout. There are 20-30 foot cliffs just below that have seen many toprope ascents or solos over the years. It's a pretty easy spot to access and there are definitely good lines for kids. Nathan Smith

Camper van with green license plates full of family invading Uintas second week of August. Open to any recommendations as to where to camp, sup, fish, and climb with 2 little kids. Ruth, Mosquito, Stone Garden, Butterfly look reasonable. Never been so we don't want to clog popular crags if crowds can be an issue. We are accustomed to chossy junk so overly-good quality rock could be a problem. Also planning a short backpacking mission to the high country for flowers. Maybe wrap-up with a float below Flaming Gorge dam. Open ears to any good ideas. Cheers- Matt Fleetwood Matt

You're *in* the high country already when you're in the Uintas! The Ruth Lake climbing is at 10400' and the Bald Mtn Pass that you drive over is 10700'. Wildflowers abound all around you!
