The Iron Curtain Wall has some nice well bolted sport routes on good quartzite and a quick approach, though the interstate noise dims the appeal. Still, this is a good place to go get a quick pump.
Take the 3300 South Exit from I-215, and turn east. Continue through the light at Wasatch Blvd, and then bear left at the first intersection. There is a parking area at the end of the road. From here, walk steeply uphill on a dirt road. Turn left onto a trail towards a distinctive boulder just before a building and cell tower. Head east on a path just before the boulder, and hike down the steep trail to the base of the wall. The Iron Curtain Wall is on the left, and the approach takes about 5-10 minutes from the trailhead.

This is the westmost line on the cliff. It almost deserves 4 stars, and I might change my mind yet. It is a very good route. It start with an easy first bolt (probably the easiest 1st bolt on the wall). Then it gets hard, forcing you to smear and edge very tenuous holds. Hands aren't much help but they are key. Maybe that didn't make sense. A key hand-hold is there to move through the crux; however, the hands don't mark your success through most of this lower section, but good f...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
