Dirty Virgin 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : But Crack Buttress
This has been bolted later then the two other climbs on the crag. It's got some fun moves at the bottom that pull around a small roof. It's pretty reachy till you pull around the roof. You can go over the roof which would make for a much harder climb or you can pull around it for the 5.9 rating. From there it's gets a little balancey and thinner. Fun but short climb....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

Whoever has been bolting in this canyon, would you please email me (nmaxhansen@gmail.com). I do not want to impede on "staked territory" but am interested in a piece of rock and would like to talk before I proceed.
