BETA PHOTO: Sport Utility Wall
There are 5 bolted routes on this cliff. All of them lead easily and have good anchors. The climbs face west and south, but with the high aspect of Mt Olympus to the East, they don't get much morning sun in the shorter months.The approach is simple-- climb up the gully to the south of the cliff, as the direct approach is loose rotten rock, and traverse North to the base.
This chunk of quartzite resides just north of Pete's Rock off of Wasatch Boulevard. This is also north of the Mt. Olympus trailhead. (about 5300 S)

The line of bolts that climbs the roofs on the South face. Hard pumpy climbing with a great rest ledge. Stay out of the gully to the right and work those fingers. The clips are pretty tough. When you get to the rest ledge, you think the climb is over, but there is one tricky sequence left. Not pumpy so much as balancey. This is the best route on the wall. ...[more] Browse More Classics in UT

Checked out this wall last week and was quite disappointed. The only routes I could actually find were the short roof and Suzuki's sidekick. Maybe I'm just blind, but my friend and I hiked all around over the steep loose rock and couldn't find the other routes. It is more of a debris field than a wall I would say. Bottom line: don't waste your time.

You didn't look around the corner left of Suzuki's. I wouldn't call this place amazing and HSS is the only real reason to visit the area, but it gets sun all winter and is a good choice if you're short on time and want to catch a quick run in January.

I really enjoyed this area, tho I did mix up wrangler's with the next most run. To get there from the south; stop at the trail head at 5500 south, and head up to Pete's rock, as per the trail. at the junction head north. follow the distinct trail until you reach the top of "sports utility wall". then down climb and head around for fun.
