Description

A great crag for hot afternoons, Visionary Wall is in a steep, east-facing gully with the routes on the north-facing wall of the gully. This, combined with many trees allows for shade most of the day. Add a nearby stream that runs for most of the spring and summer, and this crag is a pleasant location.

The routes are mostly steep, fairly tricky affairs with none of the standard American Fork pockets and lots of devious edges.

Getting There

Walk up Tank Canyon and follow the trail on the east (right) of the streambed. The trail will cross the streambed heading north and then immediately turn east (right). Continue following the trail through a grove of evergreens and then step over some tree roots and a short steep section to walk to the left of the stream.

The trail (and stream) turns north again (left); follow the trail past two gullies on the left. Just before the third gully a bolted route will appear on a limestone outcropping that almost reaches to the streambed. This is the first route. Look up the gully and you'll see constructed belay landings.

About a 12-minute walk.
