White Wave Wall Rock Climbing

Cool looking wall - it looks just like a big tidal wave. Starts slabby and easy and then steepens into a burly overhang. This isn't a huge crag but there are several good routes.
Park at the Gray Cliffs parking area, 1.7 miles up canyon from the visitor center. Follow the paved trail until it turns into a dirt trail that goes up the hill to crags. This is the Hard Rock
area. Follow the trail up canyon (along the base of the crags) past a couple of crags. You will walk past the south face of Hard Rock
to White Wave Wall
(which you can't miss - it looks like a white wave). If you get to the grayish Escape Buttress
, you have gone too far.

This route probably deserves 4 stars, but I don't think it is quite as good as the 4 star routes on the Billboard. So really it probably gets 3 and a half stars. Also, this is probably the easiest 12a tick in American Fork, which may be of interest to some folks! After numerous AF sandbags, you might find this route to be more in the ballpark of what you expect for 12a. This is the farthest left route on the Wave as you are facing it. Just right of it is a 12d called Knuckle Up, and there is a...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
