Description

This east facing wall is excellent for moderate traditional leaders. The wall is 500 feet high and has at least 13 routes on it, most of those in the 5.5 to 5.8 range. While only a 45 minute approach from the road in Big Cottonwood Canyon, you will find great seclusion. It feels remote and alpine. If you want multi pitch climbing and to escape the crowds, this wall is for you.

Getting There

Park at the pullout just after crossing the creek .2 miles up canyon from the Storm Mountain Picnic area.

Hike up the canyon due north for 3/4 a mile. Look for the wall to your left. Avoid cutting up the slope too soon. Look for talus fields or for a semi-obvious trail. Leaving the main trail and heading up towards the wall is a bit of a pain. It is steep, and not very enjoyable, but remember...you are escaping the crowds!

Allow 45 minutes to an hour for the approach.
