This is the east side of the Coffin gully. It is west-facing, and somewhat broken appearance. The rock did not seem to be all that good on the areas I climbed. Good afternoon sun in the winter, and a close proximity to the Coffin. If the Coffin is packed, like it was today, explore over here.
Park in the Little Cottonwood
lower canyon Park and Ride. Locate the climber's trail in the lot's northeast corner (directly north of the restroom). Follow this trail east until you are directly below the obvious shaped Coffin Buttress
. Hike up towards The Coffin
gully and pick your line on this west-facing slabbish area. The routes start at the southern end and continue up to the culmination of the gully.

This is the approach pitch to Peter's Flight School, Barking Spiders, etc. More of an approach than a climb, this slab is quite clean and a good quickie for the kiddies. I'm guessing it's 5.4, but does anyone really know the difference between 5.0-5.4? I will say I was glad to not have the approach shoes on for this though....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
