June 1st, 2017:The Salt Lake Climbers Alliance (SLCA), the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church), and Access Fund announce the signing of an unprecedented lease for 140 acres in Little Cottonwood Canyon (LCC). The parcel, known as the Gate Buttress, is about one mile up LCC canyon and has been popular with generations of climbers because of its world-class granite.
The agreement secures legitimate access to approximately 588 routes and 138 boulder problems at the Gate Buttress for rock climbers, who will be active stewards of the property. The recreational lease is the result of several years of negotiations between LDS Church leaders and the local climbing community.
Access Note: The climbs on the Church Buttress above the vault as well as the Glen boulders that have been traditionally closed will remain closed.
Please help us steward this area and leave no trace.
The starts to some great moderate routes reside here, including the popular, eponymous classic Beckey's Wall (5.7) and Tarzan (5.10a). Tarzan can also be linked up with Tingey's Terror and Tingey's Torture to make one of the longest routes in the area (~11 pitches).
A good trail climbs up to rock below the Dihedrals Area. Follow the trail right along the base a short distance, then scramble up slick third-class slabs to a ledge system and the start of the climbs.
