Description 

Sharp and solid limestone will require tape that you may have left at the parking lot because of the long approach. The northern aspect of the wall keeps it cool. There are plenty of project routes here, and the bolts come and go. Plan for the unexpected. There are lots of chains for TR.

Getting There 

Take I-215 to 3300 South. Drive north on Wasatch Blvd to Warr Rd. Turn east and then north onto Cascade Way. There is a gate at the end of the asphalt. Please be respectful of homeowners when parking. Hike up the dirt road on the other side of the gate. The road turns and climbs to the east, then levels out and turns to the south. Pass a birdhouse and you'll see the top of the Quarry behind a steep embankment. Do yourself a favor and use the swichback to the south. Do not enter the quartzite box canyon. Instead, follow the fork in the trail that winds up the ridge. The Reef is the lowest limestone outcrop on the ridge. Plan on 30 minutes of hiking.

Electric Jellyfish 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Reef
In the Ruckman guide, there are two unnamed routes, 10 and 11, that share an anchor. Both of these are silly as they start with boulder problems and quickly become easy 5th. The hangers had been stripped. Electric Jellyfish starts on the 5.11 boulder, then heads up the steep headwall to the anchors of November Sun. This is, for sure, one of the best routes at the crag....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
