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.

Certain Death 5.8+ 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Waterfront, The
This route was probably named this scary name because it was first climbed back when large protection was unavailable. With modern big gear one could sew it up if the climbing gear budget was big enough.The large OW is visible from the schoolroom area and once at the base, you can really see how big it really is. My guess is that you will be frustratingly close to squeezing into the chimney. Close but no cigar.Right side in, or left side in... that is always debatable. And I have had multipl...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
