This is the furthest East of the most significant East Hellgate Walls. Though one of the last to be developed, it is the first one encountered hiking up the trail. Maybe due to this last factoid, it is also probably the most popular and most crowded. MMW offers long and well protected routes, two-pitch routes, aesthetic movement, and modern day classics in the 5.8 to 5.12 range. If one discusses the highest quality (if there is such a concept in some people's minds regarding upper LCC) Hellgate limestone, perhaps the Melting Mud Wall, despite its name to the contrary, stands tall in the quality ratings.
Park off the main Little Cottonwood Canyon Wall below the Microwave. This is directly across from the Alta bypass road.

A really fun .10 with lots of really big jugs interspersed between nice pockets and crimps. This has two pitches and the first has two variations - one in the dihedral and one on the face but I'm not sure how those guys meant for it to go. I just know if you link both pitches together in one long pitch its a really fun climb. Just enough jugs and rests to avoid being .11...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
