Hike up Red Pine, cross over Maybird into Hogum, and drop down Coalpit Gulch. That will be good and long.

You can go in across the pipe at the Swamp Boulders. I think the bridge at Tanner's Flat is still in too, isn't it? kBobby

Park about 50 yards in front of mile marker 5. Take the trail leading down into the woods till you get to a wider section then turn left to find the bridge. JoeyS

From the Salt Lake Climbers Alliance:

Yesterday we sent an email urging climbers to use the bridge located near Lisa Falls parking to access the Pentapitch/Coalpit area.

We have since learned that the bridge is closed. The bridge several miles below is also closed, as is the trail at the mouth of the canyon. The Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest Service has closed the trail until further notice due to spring runoff.

You can view Forest Service alerts and notices here.

Please obey posted signs on the trails and stay off of the pipe crossing near the pump house. Parking at the pump house has also been an issue, the landowner needs space for heavy equipment loading/unloading and there has been an instance where he was unable to do so. Park well away from the pump house and look for posted no-parking signs.

So there's no legal way to get to the north facing routes?

Pretty much. I talked to Steve Schnide (Sp?) from the FS a few weeks ago. He basically asked for patience while the high water is going on, and said the FS is planning on getting the trail reopened /bridge rebuilt this summer if possible.

I gave you the legal way in the first reply to this post. Although looking up Coalpit Gulch yesterday there is a bit of water comming down it. You might want to take along a wetsuit and snorkle.

The route in it's entirety.
2 chain link gates up from the old bridge/pump house park on the right. walk down the road, and hit the bridge. its a 10 min walk to the PentaPitch approach trail, and easy as pie. Greg G
