The Upper 5.8 Wall is basically located above 5.8 Wall to the climber's left (SW). The only named route follows the crack system just to the left of the arete. Possibilities for other fun climbs abound in this area.
One can approach by either climbing one of the routes on 5.8 Wall (ie, Standard Crack - 5.7) or using the TR approach per 5.8 Wall beta. The 'trail' then meanders SW to the base of the wall.

Another Friend 5.7 5a 15 V+ MVS 4b UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Upper 5.8 Wall
The route follows a system of cracks to the climber's left of the arete. Belay for 2nd pitch towards upper-middle of ascent. Second pitch is short, with lower section covered in lichen.NOTE: This two-pitch variation is different than what is listed elsewhere with regards to the belay stations. We used a 60 m rope to essentially span the two pitches listed in the popular Ogden guide book and then went all the way to the top. (see pictures below)...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
