Tinker Toys is a short but fun wall for top ropes or sport leads up clean quartzite faces. The left side of Tinker Toys also provides a nice protectable 5.7 crack. All bolts are well placed and good double chain anchors are located at the top of each route.
An 18-inch ledge runs horizontally through the middle of the wall and provides a perfect rest spot. A great wall for playing around and improving your skills. Shade trees at the base provide shade for the belayer, but the wall faces west giving it direct afternoon and evening sunshine.
Start from the Rock Canyon parking lot and walk up the canyon for about fifteen minutes. You will pass the first major rock formations, Red Slab and Black Rose, on your right.
Just after you pass the pump house on the right, but before you get to The Kitchen and the gate, scamper up through the trees on one of the many trails for about 80 meters. You will pass Bolt Slab and Green Monster (both of which face west) on the left. Green Monster is identifiable because of the large crack that runs up the middle of it.
Tinker Toys is the next major west-facing rock face south of Green Monster.
Tinker Toys has several obvious bolted routes and chain anchors on top.
This climb is a must do. It has a slight overhang all the way up. That means no rest for your hands. The route is hard to top rope because of the slight overhang. I prefer to lead routes that overhang because I know I won't scrape down the wall if I fall. The crux is the section from the last bolt to the anchors. ...[more]Browse More Classics in UT
This is the perfect wall to take your friends to introduce them to climbing. It is at the mouth of the canyon, easy to get to, short easy climbs, almost all of which can be top roped so you don't have to trust your life to a first timer.
