The Adjective Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: The Adjective from the east. 1 Project 2 Furious 5...
Steep, shaded, limestone wall with a variety of bolted routes. The wall faces east and is shaded by numerous trees along the base.
A good crag for hot summer afternoons and evenings, the routes lie along two or three hundred yards of the east face of a limestone fin that reaches down to the streambed.
Proceed up the canyon to the first stream crossing (a small wooden bridge). Instead of crossing the bridge stay right along the edge of the stream bed. Continue past the gully on the right (approx. 100 feet from the crossing) and along the base of the wall at the right (south) of the stream bed . When the wall turns a corner and heads south you are at the north side of The Adjective.
The routes following are listed from left-to-right (i.e, from uphill to downhill).
5. Twisted Tit
Wall with triple-ledge system at base, bordered by a 15-foot evergreen on each side:
Wall with double-ledge system, bordered by a 50-foot evergreen on each side:

Just right of Vomit are two steep lines. The left of these is Ferocious. The intended start seems to be an obvious rail hold that isn't as good as you would like. But we found a good way to do it using a great sidepull-undercling hold to the left and just over head high. Once you get past the second bolt the holds are all really good and it is just a matter of enduring. The ending does hold one last challenge for you, so save something if you can. Really fun line......[more] Browse More Classics in UT

This area is seeing a lot of work and has quite a few new routes that all seem to be stellar. Watch for falling rock...I was up here when Andy was bolting and cleaning some of these and there was some serious rock coming down. Highly recommend this area.

There are a lot of new routes being bolted & cleaned on this wall right now. A few are projects but many have FA with ratings, but are not included yet. And yeah, some seriously large stuff has been cleaned off this wall. Definitely will be some classic lines when finished!
