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.

Getting There 

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.

Climbing Season

For the American Fork Canyon area.

Weather station 2.4 miles from here

Featured Route For White Wave Wall
Rock Climbing Photo: Doing the crux throw.

Knuckle Up 5.12d 7c 28 IX 28 E6 6b  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : White Wave Wall
This route starts with 40 feet of easy slab climbing to a campsite rest below the steep headwall. Get psyched as it's on from here. Several two-finger pockets take you to the business, a big throw off a two-finger pocket to a good jug. Then it's big moves on big jugs to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
