The Pillar.


This is a little Alpine crag with great rock in a super nice setting. It faces west and goes in the sun around noon. It is covered with a little lichen and has some grass in the cracks. We cleaned as much as we could/needed to stop people moaning too much. Just try and remember its Alpine and gets you away from the herds.

We found a peg and a sling in the big main corner, also a peg right of Cavas de Weinert. Anyone who has any ideas on those I would like to hear from them.
The star ratings are based on this crag only.
All the routes were good, with some just better than others.

Bring extra slings incase you need to replace or backup anchors.

Getting There 

Drive up Little Cottonwood Canyon to the Red/White Pine parking area. Hike the Red Pine trail until it levels out about 5 mins from the lake. Turn left (east) off the trail for another 5 mins to the base of the talus right below the crag.
About 1.5 hrs hike from the road.

Definitely bring slings and bail biners/rap rings. We found a few slings/biners in random places that had been blown off. Come prepared. Beautiful area - can't wait to get up there again.
