Description

This is a nice place to climb some high quality moderates on good quality limestone. Fairly short approach when compared to the walk to the Cathedral. The approach time is approximately 20 minutes.

Gets sun until early afternoon.

Getting There

Same driving directions as for the Cathedral, Wailing Wall, Basilica, and Logan Crag. From the cow pens, hike along the stream bed under large cottonwood trees. After about 10 minutes, you will pass the Logan Crag on your right. Shortly after passing this crag, take a left and head up the wash toward the Sumo Wall and the rest of the Welcome Springs crags. Look for the first prominent rock wall on the left, this is the Sumo Wall. To be sure...look for the face at the base of the wall. The approach trail is hidden somewhat behind a large boulder on the left.
