Description 

This is a fairly short wall with a handful of nice climbs.

Getting There 

The approach is the same for most of the Utah Hills areas. Drive along the road until you pass the foundation on the left and the road makes a right turn. At the turn in the road, park(if you have a low clearance vehicle) or continue up the wash with the Gorilla cliffs on your right and Snakepit on the left. There are several pullouts and a few nice camping spots right in front of the Simian Complex. The Simian Complex is on the right. Short but beautiful steep and orange and gray stripped limestone.

This routes has great sequences! You might want to stick clip the first bolt as it protects the crux. Start in the orange rock to the right of the line. Climb up using crimps and layback edges (crux), until you can traverse above the first bolt to reach the 2nd. From here, it's straight up to a bulge and 3rd bolt. Pull the bulge on the left and move back right to the anchors. For only 3 bolts, they are exactly where you want them. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
