Cody on syllogism from the picnic area.

Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>


The Grey Cliffs Picnic Area is on the north side of the road just up canyon from the entrance to the Little Mill Campground (which contains Division Wall, among others).

There is a large parking lot that has room for eight or so cars, a bulletin board, and a bathroom.

Getting There 

Drive up the canyon past the Timpanogos Cave National Monument, watching for the entrance to the Little Mill Campground on your right.

Shortly after passing the campground entrance a sign on the left announces the picnic area. Don't pull in at the first, small parking area for one or two cars; wait for the larger lot, shown here.

Syllogism 5.12d 7c 28 IX 28 E6 6b  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : The Grey Cliffs
Stellar. The crux is the first huge roof- a big reach for a shallow two finger pocket from below on good holds. Now crank on through. The route offers many powerful and engaging sequences as one climbs through successive roofs. Well placed bolts, and awesome movement should be expected. Although it is peppered with some incredible jugs, it is hardly a jug-haul. The final move over the last roof is just waiting to make you its bitch on your onsight attempt. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
