Description

This area is on the south side of the canyon, west of the the Storm Mountain. It is a great place for shade till around 2:00 and to avoid the poop storms at the Slips and Challenge Buttress. This ridge is like a brother to Steorts and Outside Corner.

Getting There

Park across from the roadside and steep sport crag known as the Speed Trap. Step out of your car and look up and south. You will see the prominent ridges. The Back of Beyond is the middle ridge with the sheerest face. Hike across the bridge that leads to a picnic area and pass through a few picnic sites heading south east. Above the highest and southern most site, climb the steep hill above. After ascending steep trail, make your way east via multiple stoner trails till you reach a drainage. This is the only river drainage in the area, if you go east you will run into it. A second option to finding the drainage is to walk east up the river till you see it come in from the south. After finding the river bed, follow it for about 30 minutes till you arrive at a trail on the right. The trail is marked with ribbon and a cairn. Follow this trail for about 15 minutes to the base of all the routes. The drainage runs in the early spring. The approach is easier than it looks.
