Unsorted Routes:


A fun little southwest facing crag in a secluded canyon with great views of the city and a really nice area to belay, picnic or just hangout. This area finds itself in morning shade, but afternoon and evening sun. Just south of the schoolroom area, its a short walk from the parking lot at the end of 29th street. The climbs range from 5.9 to 5.10b with everything from crimpers to jugs, a small roof, and an easy, somewhat short approach. Because it is a smaller area it does not get as much attention as 9th Street. The rock quality is good. There aren't that many routes, and perhaps that's the reason that it doesn't see more traffic. Easy toprope access and great photo opportunities with a great view of the city below.

Getting There

The crag is visible from the parking lot at the end of 29th street. Park at the 29th street trail head parking, head to the Bonneville shoreline trail and then go north a short distance past the first large power pole on the right - look for the climbers trail that leads to the base of the crag. You'll be looking for the trail that climbs south east up the hill side. Approach is approx 10 min.

Here is a map of the area Getting from the main area to the Mosspile and Upstairs areas can be either long or difficult. The bushwhacking options is more direct but very undesirable. A more pleasant, but longer options is to take the Bonneville Shoreline Trail up and around to the upper part of the area. May 29, 2015
Anyone have beta on the red tagged route left of safety goggles? Nov 13, 2013

Thanks for the history, Tom! The quality of the climbing isn't the best here, with the exception of the middle 5.10a, but I believe these routes, especially on the lower wall, are a great addition to Ogden climbing given the accessibility of the wall and the anchors.

Also, the base of the lower wall is a nice unexposed area to hang out around and enjoy the views out over the valley with those who wouldn't otherwise deal well with the exposure of other O-town areas. Oct 29, 2013

Bolted the routes on the lower wall back around 2001-2002. I thought it might be a good place to take beginners (Scouts, etc.), when all the easy climbs at 9th Street were taken. The routes turned out to be a little more difficult and maybe a little more fun than expected. Jul 3, 2013
Just to add some clarification on where the climbs are. When you hike up from 29th street, the first wall you reach contains Safety Goggles, Overlooked, 8 Ball Corner Pocket, and Loose Shingles. From there, if you continue ascending the hill you will hit the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. Uphill from the trail are climbs on three distinct rock features. On the left is Rustbucket and Gilbert. The aesthetic towerish thing in the middle has Upstairs, and the mossy looking wall on the right has Mosspile. Sep 12, 2012

This is a nice area for families. There is a nice flat belay area, and plenty of nooks and crannies for the kids to explore in the area. Jun 15, 2010
