Description 

Thirty feet east of The Kitchen lies George. Multiple routes rating from 5.8 to 5.12 climb up or on either side of an overhanging arete.

The main face of George (10 feet over from the main arete) hosts several nicely bolted routes that are sure to thrill the intermediate level climber.

All routes feature good bolt anchors at the top.

Getting There 

Hike up the canyon from the main parking lot for about .25 miles. Pass the water house on your right, and after passing The Kitchen on your right go through the main, green gate.

You will immediately see a short gully to right of the trail that goes up about 25 feet of trail before it hits a large chimney with a giant chockstone placed in it about 20 feet up. George starts at the arete on the left side of the chimney and includes all of the faces to the east along the craggy face.

Featured Route For George
I fell at the crux of this route and pendulumed into some sharp flakes at the base of the roof on the east end. My shin whacked into them, took a nice chunk of skin off, and I had to get some stitches.

George of the Jungle 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : George
The obvious roof near the bottom. pretty darn powerful underclings to crimpers. The upper prow is only 5.10b or so, but incredible. You can climb this upper part alone by skipping around to the 5.9 start up the chimney to the right. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

There is what seems to be a third pitch to Lounge Lizards that it is a pretty stout one more wonder that brings you to the top of the spire. Does anyone know what that is? I can't seem to find it on here.
