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.

This steep and wild line ascends the west side of The Egg. Tendon and joint complaints ruled me out for freeing it, but there is no question that someone soon will get a great free pump out of this unique climb. It will be interesting to hear the reports and it will probably yield more stars as a free climb.
