The obvious spiked ridge connecting the right edges of the Red Slab
and the Ed and Terry Wall
. Mostly new bolted routes with a few short, hard, trad lines thrown in for fun.
Most of the routes face N/NW so it is pretty shady most of the day.
From the parking lot stay right on the paved road. When you see a short, blocky, concrete structure on your left you can also see an obvious trail leading up the hill on your right (the start has an upside-down 'Y' aspect to it). Take this trail and branch left at the first intersection. Follow this to the top of the Red Slab
and then scramble on 4th class terrain (following a fixed rope) up to Ed and Terry Ridge
Be careful of loose rocks that can easily be dislodged onto climbers on Red Slab
. It only takes 5 more minutes to reach the wall once you are at the base of Red Slab
See the picture
of the approach trail.

A fairly fun, slabby, quartzite route with a discontinuity in the middle for some spice. Mosstique starts on a ledge that requires some work to reach. From the ledge climb onto the slabby face and clip the first bolt. Then it's up some mostly clean and solid rock until the short "headwall". Surmount this and continue to the anchors.There is a bit of exposure here and there which makes it fun....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
