Get's sun for the better part of the day. Not one of the best cliffs up here, but there are a few quality lines. Many of the lines require an A0 start.

Gets sun around 10am in the dead of winter.

Getting There 

The approach for this cliff is the same as for the Gorilla Cliff. Continue up the road/wash from the foundation where the road turns to the right. After passing the first half of the Gorilla cliffs on the right, look for a trail at the far end of the Snakepit on the left. The first routes encountered from the trail are Sega, 5.11a and Prickler, 5.11a

The Goss guidebook warns that this line is sharp, but if you're solid at the grade, use your feet, and don't thrash about you will enjoy some excellent tufa flowstone and fun movement. This climbs like a slab with great friction for the feet, several good pockets and some prickly edges that you never need to bear down on. The biggest threat is grating your knuckles while clipping around a few protruding features....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
