DescriptionThe Recess is a traditional climbing area on Uinta quartzite, there are no sport routes here. No bolts even for anchors. Good anchors skills are a must for climbing here. Most of the climbs are in the shade. There are about 20 climbs ranging from 5.5-5.11b between 35 to 45 feet. A standard rack and extra webbing or cordelette is needed.
Getting ThereTo reach the crag head up the mirror lake highway just past mile marker 14 or just before the Soapstone Basin. Park and look to the Northwest. You need to find a small notch in the cliff band, once you find it head for it. Hop over the talus field. Go through the notch and start climbing. ETA is about 15 minutes.
