Description

This wall is across the canyon from the Contest Wall. It will be in the shade until noon, or a little after. It has fewer sport routes than many other Shelf wells, but there are actually some trad routes in addition to the sport. From a glance, most routes are between 9 and hard 11, though there are many less frequented easy corners for the trad climbers.

Getting There

Take the left turn into Sand Gulch just a few minutes after the road turns into gravel. Take the road continuing to turn right, through some campsites until you get to the day parking lot. Walk a little west and you will spot the trail (same as for Contest Wall and Sand Gulch). Walk 15, not more than twenty minutes. Branch off to the right at the sign.

A route was recently put up near where the trail through the canyon comes up to Free Form - I saw the guy bolting it over Memorial Day. It is a nice route and I think it goes at 5.9 or less. Anybody have any ideas who it was who put it up (I forgot to ask him his name) and what he decided to call it? Sep 11, 2007
