This wall is home to several excellent face/friction sport routes in the 5.7 to 5.10 range.This area gets the sun at about 10 or 11 in the morning depending on the time of year, and get sun 2 to 3 hours earlier than the Circus, and Aftershock walls in the winter. The rock here is excellent for the most part with the occasional loose hold. A 60m rope works fine as all of these routes are equiped with lowering/rappel anchors.
Follow the directions that Guy Humphrey gives for the Sand Dunes area. When the cliff is reached instead of ascending the 4th class gully to the Sand Dunes cliff continue along the base of the cliff to the south until the Indian Wall is reached. This was can be identified as being the a wide slab area with several bolted routes, and corners and tiny buttresses and corners bordering both sides. This wall is directly behind the word "wall" in Guy Humphreys picture of the Sand Dunes area on this website.

This is the left-most bolted route on the Indian Wall. Up the steep slab past bolts to a two-bolt anchor at about 90 feet. This is a quality slab/face climb with cool moves. The crux is at the very top before the anchors. I found this climb to be adequately protected with just clipping the bolts....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
