Description 

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.

Getting There 

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.

Barking Up the Wrong Spider 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : The Keel
The name is a clue as to the route's location. And before you get your butt floss in a wad, read the comments below. This climbs what we sincerely thought was a new line and at least 10-15 feet left of the original Barking Spiders. It climbs the obvious slab below Razor Flake but trends left after bolt 4. You can either climb this route in it's entirety OR after clipping bolt 4, head right and up RF--all in 1 pitch (2 stars imo). For RF you'll need a #1,2,3 camalot.
