DescriptionThe wall above and left of the "Remnants of an Ancient Sea" pullout in Big Cottonwood Canyon has a quick and easy approach which leads to multipitch climbing and good exposure. This is also sometimes called Jacob wall. Bring a helmet, because if you get off route, you are likely to run into loose rock.
Getting ThereThe wall is located directly above the road approx. 2.4 miles up canyon on the right side (south side) of the road. There will be a pullout there and a sign which reads "Remnants of an Ancient Sea." (Picture here.) Park in this pullout and follow the semi-obvious trail up to the wall. (Five to ten minute approach.)
Another option, depending on the climb you are going to, is to drive a couple of hundred yards further up canyon and park on the right. Follow a trail up and move to the right towards the wall using your best discretion. This is a terrible scree field right above the road, so be careful.
