South-Facing Wall Rock Climbing
Tuna Melt, 5.11d
A wide wall, with mostly moderates (5.10-ish) on the far left and harder 5.12s to lower 5.13s on the right side of the wall.
The Ruckman guide shows three 5.9 and 5.10 lines on the far left side of the wall. However, since that guidebook was published seven more lines have been added. One is .11d, but most are in the low-to-mid 5.10 range.
Approach per the main page; the wall faces south-east. The right side of the wall has many large, blue mineral deposits on steep, overhanging rock.
Climbing Season For the American Fork Canyon area.

Enjoyable climbing in a corner with pockets and stemming. Big sidepulls and occasional crack features lead up the corner weakness with a slight bulge near the top. A few large pockets that you'll feel guilty about not using because there are too many other holds.If you contrived to stay on the face only it'd probably be mid-5.10....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
