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.

From here look to move back right a smidge into some frustrating small pockets and fight the exhaustion to the chain....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
