Description

This scenic wall in Big Cottonwood Canyon offers sport climbing on red limestone edges. It has spectacular views up Mineral Fork, looking at the back of Mt. Superior and the Superior ridge line. It faces south, so it is very nice during the Spring and Fall months. You are more likely to see hawks and elk than people here.

As always wear your helmet!

Getting There

Park at the overflow for winter parking at the "Doughnut Falls" area.(This is where everyone sleds in the winter.) Walk back downcanyon, crossing the road to a thick group of pines on the north side of the canyon road. After passing a small red and white checked highway sign you will see the start of the trail (about 75 yards from parking). Pay attention to stay on the trail through the pine trees as there are many game trails that switch back and forth over the trail. Be sure to exit the first big talus field on the left part way up. Handlines are fixed at the perpetually loose steep bits. Hike with your head up or you will get off trail.
