South facing wall that gets great sun exposure, making this wall a great early season adventure or an afternoon/evening expedition. The rock is quality just like all of the other quartzite in the uintas that has that sandpaper grip.
  • **No anchors or bolts except for the west side of the detached pillar*** (#1 in smith and tusting's book has 3 rap anchors)

Getting There 

A half mile past mile maker 18 is a pullout on the south side, park here and head north up the scree for 10 minutes to the route of you choice.
