Nice, sunny (south facing) area that has some of the best moderate routes in AF.
Park at the Gray Cliffs Picnic Area parking, 1.7 miles up canyon from the visitor center. Follow the paved trail east, paralleling the road, until the trail reaches a picnic area (with bench) and the trail turns into a dirt trail that goes up the hill to a wall with many bolted routes. This is the Hard Rock area.

Body Bag 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ E3 5c UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Escape Buttress
This is the second to the last climb on escape and to the east of a large crack (not to be confused with the large dihedral that is further west. Shares anchors with Dead on Arrival (the route furthest east on escape).The route is very steep face climbing at the beginning. The bolt placement could have been better, work the features to the left more so than the right. Has some tenuous crimpy holds mixed in with good pockets....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
