Approach

Park at the Grist Mill, 0.55 miles east of the Park & Ride. There are drainages every few hundred feet so it's critical you get the correct one.

Area Description

This area is very recognizable from Little Cottonwood Road (UT 210). The ridge is defined by the huge detached block that sits directly below Hanging Slab. Look for a 200' long slab east of Super Slab and west of Alpenbock Ridge.

History

Talk about "Climbing Club Central". This scrappy little area was actually one of the first places in the canyon frequented by climbers. Since that time it hasn't seen much interest though... until Johnny Woodward climbed Trench Warfare! Come to think of it... that didn't actually get folks clamoring to come check it out either. :-) But the world was pretty intrigued by the photos! Well... You can come check it out for yourself now. It's kinda' spectacular, in a sick-bat-man-foot-stuck-trad-climber sort of way.
