Description

This is a little Alpine crag with great rock in a super nice setting. It faces west and goes in the sun around 1pm. It is covered with a little lichen and has some grass in the cracks. All but three routes (they needed some biggish trundling) were done on sight and we cleaned as much as we could. Just remember its Alpine, gives you something to do in the summer and gets you away from the crowds.

Some of these routes may have been done in the past as we found a peg in the big main corner and also a peg right of Cavas de Weinert. So these are the first recorded ascents. If you did any of these routes in the past and would like the glory, I would be happy to change route names, FA names etc.
The star ratings are based on this crag only.
All the routes were okay, with some better than others.

Bring extra slings in case you need to replace or backup anchors. Worth carrying a nut tool on the lead for cleaning.

Getting There

Drive up Little Cottonwood Canyon to the Red/White Pine parking area. Hike the Red Pine trail until it levels out about 5 mins from the lake. Turn left (east) off the trail for another 5 mins to the base of the talus right below the crag.
About 2 hrs hike from the road.
