This is a limestone sport area between St. George and Las Vegas that includes The Cathedral, The Wailing Wall, The Sumo Wall, The Basilica, and The Logan Crag.
From the south (Las Vegas): Take I-15 north to Littlefield, AZ. Take exit 8 towards Beaver Dam and get onto Hwy 91 (west of I-15) heading north. Follow Hwy 91 for exactly 13 miles and turn left/west onto a gravel road (Lytle Ranch Road). This turn is almost directly opposite an obvious, 200' roadside cliff. Follow this for 1.9 miles to an intersection; turn right. Continue for another 1.9 miles to a water tank and a pair of wooden corrals. Park here. Hike to the walls by following the wash east past the corrals and past cottonwood trees, eventually contouring around to the north. The Sumo Wall will be on your left; for the Cathedral or Wailing Wall, continue past this, eventually contouring back west; these walls will be on your right.

Heretic Wisdom 5.12a/b 7b 26 VIII+ E5 6a UT : Saint George : ... : The Wailing Wall
This route climbs the blunt arete around the left corner from Resurrection.

Save some strength for a challenging top out on grey limestone. Without a definitive crux move, expect to be pumped. If you climb 5.12 and you are in South West Utah (or the United States for that matter) this route is not to miss. ...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
