The Scoop 

A small addition to the Parley's crags. All routes done May 2008.

Getting There 

Best approached from above with an easy 5 minute walk from the top of
existing Parley's crags. Pass the cell tower building on the south side taking
the obvious hiking trail East. At the first fork go left. Trail sidehills over to,
and ends near a power pole. Continue over to the top of the routes or go down
Rusty's Staircase (5.0) to the base of the routes. Though the routes are short,
the rock is good and the climbing fun and moderate.

We went to the canyon to scout out some climbs today, and I just want to make sure we found the Bungalow Wall. It is the crag furthest East into the canyon right?
I just moved to the area and dont start my new job for 2 months, so my schedule is wide open. Does anyone have time to show me around a little?

Nice little crag with a couple moderate routes. Easy to get to. With the trees it's shaded for the belayer almost all day. Everything can be top roped if you are taking out some beginners.

Medium Hike, easy to get to, however you start at the top of the climb so you have to scramble down or rappel down. Lots of easy climbs which are great for beginners and starting lead climbers. Good Shade however around 1 the sun is in your eyes climbing and in your belayers eyes. So get there early. The 5.10 is really a 5.9 with a couple thin tuff moves, the rest of the climb is easy so there isn't much difficulty on this crag, makes for good beginner crag.

Also remember to save enough energy to climb out of the belay area.

Encountered 2 large rattlesnakes at this area today at the top of the routes and almost got bit myself....Dropped my guidebook in a panic on the way to the rappel and I wasn't able to go back and get it due to the snake so if anyone finds a "Guidebook to climbing the Wasatch Range" at the top of Gas Hike (I think) and wants to return it, it would be greatly appreciated.

cdec and I put up three new routes on the Bungalow Wall over the last couple of months. They are located on the wall to the right of Rusty's Staircase, and have cleaned up really nicely! Check them out!

Here is the approach info:

• The regular approach follows the approach directions for the Upper Bungalow Wall and then makes use of a fixed rope to descend the gully below Rusty's Staircase. The fixed rope is located towards the highway from the wall at the bottom of the downclimb.

• The lower approach is accessed via the old highway that runs from the base of the Iron Curtain Wall and ends after the Bungalow Wall. Walk up canyon past the Riptide Wall, past some scree piles, until you are almost at the Bungalow Wall. A faint trail heading up and right will take you to the Lower Bungalow Wall. Be wary not to grab loose rock as you reach the wall, the rock is actively exfoliating.

climbed here on fri (6/13/14), nice spot to climb with good rock quality but beware of rattlesnakes. me and my climbing partner saw two rattlesnakes right next to the trail. we had to rap back down and take the long way out. thanks for putting up the rope on the staircase, it's definitely useful.

Climbs on the western face (right of Rusty's Staircaise) are great, thanks for setting them! belay area is tight down there, but climbing is worth it.

Really don't recommend climbing DOWN Rusty's staircase! We rapped down Road Rage (setup nice for a top roped project), and climbed out via Rusty's. 'staircase' is a misnomer - it's really technical scrambling at a 5.3 level.
