Approach 

The area photos should help you find your way to this route.

Route Description 

The detached block cutout makes for some squirrely starts, but the slab above is pretty nice. The route is longer than it appeared to me from the road.

Pitch 1: Start left of an overhang on the left side of the slab. Climb to a bolt. Traverse right to a 2nd bolt. Climb cracks. Belay in bushes.
Pitch 2: Climb up a nice runout slab.

Protection 

I recommend 8 cams (0.5"-3"), 8 nuts (0.3"-1"), 32 carabiners & 12 runners (24").

Descent 

Rappel 75' down/east and scramble down/north.

History 

The Steinfell Club was a group of climbers from the Ogden area in the 1960s. They also did a lot of stuff in the City of Rocks. BrianinSLC can probably tell you a lot more if you have questions.
