West-facing, solid, textured limestone with a small roof halfway up, located in the eastern reaches of Rock Canyon.

The lower half of this slabby wall has interesting, eroded texture reminiscent of the surface of a rasp (similar to, but not as sharp as the rock at Black and Tan). The upper half has hard, brown mineral deposits that provide lots of texture and friction.

In some ways, a smaller, easier version of Bug Barn Dance Wall.

Getting There 

About 25 minutes from the parking lot on the north side of the canyon.

Follow the trail past the third bridge that crosses the stream (or stream bed, depending on season). Approximately 150 to 200 feet past the bridge a rock ridge sweeps down from the north to meet the trail. Follow a trail on the west side of this outcropping to the Solitary Misdemeanors crag.

Start to the left of a small, incut “seat” and move to the first bolt on small edges (some have thought that getting to the first bolt was kind of tricky).Continue up alongside a small, right-facing corner to the roof. Clip the fourth bolt and step up. The crux is getting past the next bit with tiny edges and slopey, insecure holds, but it is well-protected. Continue up to the anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

Lonely little wall. Granted it is attatched to the "Mass Murder Wall" but nobody should ever get on that piece of junk! The 2 routes here cover some pretty darn good rock.

I give the landing and trail 4 stars. Totally classic, dude.

These routes are fun additions to the canyon. I always enjoy moderate limestone climbing.
