This cliff stays shaded for much of the day and is good during the late spring or early fall. Overall, route concentration here isnít quite as high as some other cliffs, but route quality is.
Go approximately 8 miles past Newspaper Rock. Pass the reservoir on your right. Just a bit further down the road and also on your right, across from the road for Beef Basin, is the parking for this wall. Pass through the gate and veer slightly right, eventually hitting a trail. There are 2 branches off this trail. The first one puts you closer to the road, near Pente and the further trail leads you to about where Excuse Station is.

The route starts off as perfect, cruiser thin hands (maybe a bit strenuous for fatter handed folks) to a good rest below the crux final 15' of the route. The crux involves tough ring locks with some features for feet. The route is maybe 90' and can easily be...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
