BETA PHOTO: Guano Wall as seen from the trail, east of the wal...
The most North-West rock in Ferguson. Triangular in shape, with a large roof across the bottom and several smaller roofs traversing higher sections. Single-pitch, trad climbing is the rule, but there are options for belays if rope drag becomes too much to handle. The roof and upper cracks eat pro well, but the base slab is a bit sparse on pro.
As you hike into Ferguson canyon, you can plainly see the rock as you start down into the canyon just past the water tank. Take note of its location, then proceed into the canyon. Tree cover makes for a bit of a challenge, but once you've descended into the canyon and are hiking up-hill again, look for evidence of a "trail ?!" on your left shortly after passing the prow-shaped boulder on your right.

Drop the packs here, and then work further left up onto the blocky shelf. The east routes start at the base of this shelf, Guano Roof starts at the west end of the shelf.

Start the climb from the west end of the blocky shelf near the west end of the large roof system. The route moves out a hand crack that splits the roof on this west end of the roof system. It is visibly identified by a triangular prow that makes up the east side of the crack, and the copius smears of bat guano that coat the shelf immediately underneath the roof. Work up to the base of the roof, via easy, but un-protected climbing. Rope drag can be a major problem after passing the roof, so I...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
