Description

A small area with a handful of excellent crack climbs. The rock is your typical Vedauwoo affair. It is a great destination if you are trying to get out of the elements (wind) that frequent Vedauwoo. The area has a north side and a south side. The northside remains in the sun for the majority of the day offering great exposure in the colder months. The main climbs in the area start at about 5.10 with not a lot else to offer. Definitely worth going to once, but once is probably enough to climb everything this place has to offer. To descend from the routes you can do an easy downclimb to the west or the east of the summit.
Dirt roads reopened as of June 2014 Details

Getting There

Same approach as Holy Saturday. Take the Turtle Rock trail west from the lower west parking in the central area. Once you reach the Holy Saturday formation continue on the trail untill you come around the western end of Holy Saturday. As you are walking look for a faint trail that leads to the northeast. This trail leads directly up the ravine to Foreign Territory. If you lose the trail remain on the right hand side as it will reduce the amount of scrambling you will have to do.

If you want to all these climbs efficiently in one day, build a rap station for Walking up to Zion, K2, Wild Thing, and Japan Club. Climb all 4, then deconstruct your rap station and only do the walk off once. The top of Wild Thing is a good option for this as there is a huge boulder you can sling, so you can keep all your gear with you. Apr 8, 2015
