Description 

AKA: The Hong Wall, This wall is home to a collection of great routes. All follow crack systems which lean right and all kick back to various degrees (i.e, hard). The rock is nice and abrasive with a little flakiness on the sides.

The wall gets morning sun and then shade later in the day.

Tick Fever is the most popular route, but Wing Nut and Strewn Masters of Gore (look like they) are worth doing.

Getting There 

This wall is located between the Crescent/Coffin Buttress and the Egg Buttress. It is on the lower back side of The Keel. It can be approached from either The Egg or The Coffin side. About 2/3rds way up to the base of The Coffin cut east and around the base into a loose wash. Scramble up to base of climbs, or even better cut to The Hong Wall from The Egg trail split left just before you begin scrambling up to The Egg.

Climbing Season

For the Little Cottonwood Canyon area.

This is the next climbable crack to the right of Tick Fever. Two beginnings exist, but I only know the one shared with the Start of Strewn Masters.Head up and left under a roof about 10 feet of the ground using plenty of features. Plug a large piece in the roof with a runner then dance left to a thin crack with flexy things here and there. Work your way carefully up to flexy block to find solid rock above it. From the block to the seam above is the crux, fingers divided here and there with a...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
