Triangle Wall Rock Climbing
This is a private and shady area at the top of the Little Cottonwood rock areas. Especially good during the head of the summer, this area also offers ice climbing/ski mountaineering.
Park at the same parking lot as for Pentapitch and Coalpit Buttresses. Hike up the scary mountain bike trail and pass the trail as for Pentapitch and Coalpit. Instead, continue on the mountainbike trail unil you locate the end of a the drainage that leads up to Triangle Wall.The beginning of this drainage is somewhat hidden by trees. You will know you are on the right track, when you are in a boulder field that heads up to the drainage. Triangle Wall is best viewed from the road. It is the cliff with multiple angular roofs up and in the back of a gully. Approach time is approximately 45 minutes to an hour. You can also get to the Triangle wall by hiking to the base of Coalpit Buttress then traversing its base up and left (east or towards Snowbird).

Snow to ice gully for a couple of pitches. Longer ice pitch than it looks. Couple of options available. Stay in the corner all the way to the top (can be very thin in places near the top), or, part way up the last pitch, step left onto the face and climb up then around left of a rock bulge and back right to the top of the ice gully at its top (below the low angle snow gully above).Note: route basically follows the summer time rock climbing route of the same name....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
