Description 

This is a big wall that is off to the left just past the Courthouse Wash Bridge. The wall looks really smooth but has a series of three blocks leaning against it at one point - this is Chinese Eyes.


Getting There 

Park at the pullout on the left immediately past the Courthouse Wash Bridge. Find a climbers trail/wash that heads NW towards big blocks leaning against the wall. About 5 minutes hiking time.

Maybe it was the rain, maybe it was just the entrada sandstone, but I thought this climb was really unappealing. However, I will still give it a star because the line is indeed attractive and Stewart Green's (Falcon Publishing) "Rock Climbing Utah" guide calls it "excellent."Head to the obvious blocks on the Great Wall (as my partner pointed out, they look like a stop-action photo of a large block slowing toppling over to the left), and to the crack in the dihedral to a three bolt anchor....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

Approach BETA*****

To approach these climbs park near the bridge that crosses Courthouse Wash.

Hike up Courthouse Wash until you reach the prominent buttress which hosts climbs like "Chinese Eyes". Cut right at/near the base of the wall and the climbs are obvious.

Do NOT tromp through the "field" of crypto from one of the pullouts after crossing Courthouse Wash. There is no established trail and the washes are sparse and scattered. Much easier to simply hike up CW.

Cheers.
