Getting weather forecast...
Riptide Wall is another cliff with a quick approach right off Wasatch Blvd. It has both sport and trad routes, so make sure to bring some gear. Some bolted routes also require a few gear placements. There are at least 8 routes, ranging from 5.9 to 5.11+.
Take the 3300 South Exit from I-215, and turn east. Continue through the light at Wasatch Blvd, and then bear left at the first intersection. There is a parking area at the end of the road. From here, walk steeply uphill on a dirt road. Turn left onto a trail towards a distinctive boulder just before a building and cell tower. Head east on a path just before the boulder, and hike down the steep trail to the base of the wall. Riptide Wall is on the right, and the approach takes about 5-10 minutes from the trailhead. It is just a short distance east of the Iron Curtain Wall.
