Michael Portanda on Gray Hound.
Nice shady limestone crag. Most routes are in the mid 5.12 range with a few harder and a few easier.
Turn on to Left Hand Fork Road. Follow the road until you reach the Friendship Campground, continue and then pass the Spring Campground. Keep going. You'll pass the Blacksmith Wall on the right and about .5 miles further you'll come to the Right Hand Fork road on the left. At this intersection continue for about 30 yards and find a place to park. From here, hike toward the stream on the right, cross it, and then find a trail that leads to the cliff. The stream crossing is just to the left of the horse pens. The first route that you come to is Native American Graffiti, 5.11d.

This climb is quite good, some say its one of the best at the crag. Climb up through several sustained sections. The crux involves pinching a protruding block and hitting a nice hidden hole up and left. It's not over after the crux. Worth doing! ...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
