Description 

The Billboard and The Vortex are accessed using this path. The trail is steep, loose, and not an altogether-pleasant experience.

The trail begins more-or-less straight up the slope on the north side of the canyon and quickly begins angling to the east.


Getting There 

Drive up canyon from the Timpanogos Cave National Monument visitors center until you reach the entrance to the Sawmill Picnic Area on the right. A short distance (approximately .2 miles) past the picnic area entrance is a small pullout on the right.

Park here and cross the road. Walk one hundred feet or so up canyon looking for a steep, loose trail that heads up the hill side. The start may or may not be marked by one or more cairns.

Right of the block is a vectorial line that crosses an overlap right off the ground, this is Death of a Sailsman. Continuous, slightly spooky climbing leads to the cruxy roof section just below the anchor. Hard to believe that Ruckman gave it only two stars.
