Mostly bolted, and nicely angled. The granite here has pockets on most of the face. The climbs tend to be long and feel very exposed. Either do a 2-rope rappel or hike off to the west. A very warm area to climb. The highest of the deep winter crags.
Park in the Little Cottonwood lower canyon Park and Ride. Locate the climber's access trail in the lot's northeast corner (directly north of the restroom). Follow this trail east until you are directly below The Egg. Continue on the switchbacks to the base of the routes. Do a small 4th class scramble to gain the routes.

Well, I checked it out on 11/23. We climbed to the top of the Egg (2nd pitch of Variety Delight), and then scrambled and bushwhacked and scrambled some more to the base of the crag.The route I chose started behind the big pine at the base, a rightward angling finger crack (5.9) with some tricky gear started things off.Meets a nice vertical hand crack with good gear, which pinches down to some flaring pod-jams briefly (5.10).After another 15 feet of nice jams, the vertical crack intersects the le...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
