|(A1) Utopian Vista Upper Tier
Scramble up easy rock for 12 feet to reach a fun (but much too short) wide fingers corner that is best tackled via laybacking to a decent ledge. Continue up steeper but positive climbing in the shallow corner to the top. Watch your head on the piņon tree branches at the top.
The route protects very well and is not very sustained so it would make for a very good beginner gear lead.
Start approximately 80 feet right of We All Float On just to the right of a big roof. The tree at the top is a good landmark. There's a good chance a flat rock with the number "7" spelled out using tiny little rocks is at the base.
Note that we *think* this route is left of Man in the Arena but we didn't find that route so we're not completely sure. Just look for the big roof and tree and you'll be there.
Small to medium SLCDs and a rack of nuts. The tree at the top serves as a good anchor. The route protects very well and is not very sustained so it would make for a very good beginner gear lead.
Rap from 2 bolt anchor next to tree.
