A northeast-facing granite buttress with both crack climbing and face climbing at low elevation and a sense of solitude. Most routes are in the .10s and .11s, with a couple of nice aid climbs as well. The most striking line has got to be Sunset Arete, with its varnished patina face climbing through solution pockets.
Driving from BCC and LCC: take Wasatch Blvd south to about 11000 S., where it turns west (at 1700 E). There is a LDS church and a park on the outside corner of this turn. Park at the park.

Make moves up the brownish face with good holds and horizontals for gear until you reach the slab. One Bolt protects the crux on the slab. There may be more horizontals that take gear after the bolt if your nervous, I just ran it out since the climbing is easy. Belay at the trees and rap off. ...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
