Description 

This wall has a selection of good crack routes. Not a lot of attention is paid to this wall, although some excellent climbing exists.

Getting There 

The wall is located immediately northeast of the Burner Buttress. Make your way to the Bongeater Buttress, go around the East side of it and some manky trails lead up to the Burner Buttress. Go around the east side of the Burner Buttress to get to the Upper Burner Wall. Another good approach is to climb The Burner or Firestarter and then scramble down and right just a little to reach the base of the routes.

Taken in halves, this is a disjointed little climb that would (as usual) be great if it got a bit more traffic. Unfortunately a large spat of scrub oak in the middle of climb seriously detracts from its quality. I found myself wishing I was sipping scotch rather than playing this game of hopscotch. Climb a quality but gritty corner (lieback and hands) for about thirty feet before traversing along a short sidewalk to the offending scrub oak. Tunnel your way upward, reaching the crouton-laden c...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
