Home to Malan's Waterfall, some farmed ice down low, and the latest attempt on the Wasatch Front to open "climbing" to a larger user group (like it or not): the Via Ferrata !

Getting There 

Lessee... Park at the top of 29th street, hike up the trail a bit, follow it around towards the south. It's the first major canyon you hike into. Cross a small bridge, hike up drainage (the trail's on the north side of this drainage) till you reach where you're going.
