This rock is just past the green gate, on the north side of the creek, where the canyon narrows. The face has a chimney with an obvious crack to the right. The approach is easy and it offers a few good routes both trad and sport. All routes allow for a single rope rappel or walk off.
About a hundred or so feet past the second, green Rock Canyon gate look for a couple of logs crossing the stream bed at some concrete structures. If the water is running cross here; if no water (most of the year) go another fifty feet or so and cross the stream bed. You'll see a clearing ahead of you with an obvious trail leading north on the far side of the clearing. Take this trail which then turns right and deposits you at The Appendage.

Wide chimney stemming, big jugs, big moves on slopey sidepulls, a tenuous pinch, and a balancy crimp or two. This route has some fun moves and has a great feeling of exposure up high.Start by scrambling up the chimney between the face with the big roof and the face to the right. Start stemming and clip the first bolt. Think about transitioning to the face. Decide "That looks pretty hard; I'll stem up a bit and clip the next bolt and then try the face". Repeat. After the third bolt, tra...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
