Description 

Just west of Kermit's Wall/Perhaps Area is another section of cliffs called The Waterfront. Home to black streaked rock galore, The Waterfront boasts several bolted slab routes along with steep and difficult cracks. Not nearly as popular as Green A area's, The Waterfront is a nice locale to beat the crowds.

Getting There 

Park as for the Gate Buttress, and hike past the Tower Boulder. Continue through the talus field, angling up and west. Look for cairns as they are present. After the talus field ends, find the soft trail through the trees and bushes to the base of the Waterfront.

Somewhere between Certain Death and Uncertain Death, you are Flirtin' Death.This line starts near the start for Beam me Up Scotty and follows the right-leaning dihedral out to the steeper wall. Just as the climbing gets a bit tougher, the gear a tad trickier and the rock much grainier, a bolt appears out to the left. clip and continue to the chickenhead and keep mantling up ledges to the belay. The bolts at the belay ledge are a bit awkwardly placed since it was Kent's first bolt on the pitch...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
