Description

Though being right next to the road, this place feels quieter and more secluded than many places in the Wasatch after an approach hike. This limestone can be very fractured and have less pockets than American Fork, but shares the labor intensity of route preparation and loose rock. Helmets may be recommended and climb cautiously on the less traveled routes.
This has been mostly visited and developed by Tooele climbers.

Getting There

Drive to the West side of the Oquirrh Mountains to get to Ophir Canyon. About a mile before the old mining town of Ophir, the Lower and upper Portwood Walls are just left of the road.
