DescriptionThe meat and potatoes wall of the area, this wall features mostly long, one pitch routes. Most of the routes have fixed anchors. Many require a 60m rope. For the routes that top out, there is a rap station above Rocketsauce (5.11c) that requires two 60m ropes to rappel back to the ledge.
Tree Crack (5.11a) is the classic, left-angling finger crack that leads to a tree near the top of the cliff.
Ethics (5.9) is a 3-bolt, mixed route at the northern edge of the wall, and is the last route before the south edge of Tree Crack North.
Getting ThereGo to 27th street in Ogden, head east and park at the end of the street. From here follow trails and switchbacks east. These trails lead one to the upper boulder field. This field is located just south of Castle Rock (the huge boulder with white paint on its west face).
Go to the north-east corner of the field via trails. Finally scramble up the talus to the base of the Utahnics Wall.
To get on the second tier, climb one of the Utanics Wall routes or climb the 4th-class approach pitch just to the left of the wall (there are other approach pitches on the lower tier, but to this point this has been the most often used).
Once on the second tier, follow the ledge north for a minute or two. The ledge will widen and the rock quality improves. As soon as bolts can be spotted one has reached the southern end of the Schoolroom Wall.
