Grandeur Peak is the most prominent peak between Mount Olympus and Parley's Canyon. While driving east on 3300 South, limestone outcrops can be seen winding up the ridge. The Quarry is raw quartzite that hasn't seen much traffic. The lowest limestone outcrop above the Quarry is the Reef. Rocket Reef is the lowest section of the continuous, winding limestone ridge. All areas are north facing and quiet. If seclusion is your thing, you'll find it here.
Getting There [Edit]
Take I-215 to 3300 South. Drive north on Wasatch Blvd to Warr Rd. Turn east and then north onto Cascade Way. There is a gate at the end of the asphalt. Please be respectful of homeowners when parking. Hike up the dirt road on the other side of the gate. The road turns and climbs to the east, then levels out and turns to the south. It takes about 10 minutes to get to the fork in the switchback that leads to the climbing.
