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.

One of the longer(est?) routes of the crag. Overhanging for a long while and then tops out on not as easy as desired slab. Crux may be pulling onto the less than vertical section, though not one move in particular felt like a hard 12.Number 1 reason to do this route: There's a cave about 2/3 up the route. Hang out there for as long as you can before your belayer rips you out of it. The rock up high is phenomenal! ...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
