Ah, The Projects. Home to some of Rock Canyon's st...
The highest attraction of many in the projects gully. Great morning shade (can even be a bit chilly) that lasts longer than most of the west facing walls in the canyon (granted, it faces NW). If you want to get away from everybody and climb some serious grades, this is the place.
From the first foot bridge (which you DO NOT CROSS) head a bit further up canyon until an obvious gully appears on your right. This is the start of the approach. You will pass a few areas on your way (pretty good for warming up if you have a away) but just keep going up a pretty crappy trail. This trail improves a bit past Treasure Island and you should have less trouble working your way the higher you go. The Projects are identified from afar (as well as up close) by several large and deep holes/caves. There are some large landings that signal the end of the long approach and the beginning of the routes.

There used to be a tree marking the start, but it has somehow vanished (elves?). On the leftish side of the wall there is a very steep white wall with several .13's on it. F-Away starts on a weird rib (belayer sits on) just left of this. There are sometimes fixed draws at the crux. So-so rock leads to a rest just before the overhanging section starts. Some harder moves lead to another rest that is less mello. A sometimes present long draw gets clipped here and you move into the crux which involv...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
