DescriptionCool due to the higher elevations, definitely secluded, and some of the best granite (!) I have ever climbed on in the Wasatch. Lots of room for more, but one draw back from my perspective is length (read short).
Getting ThereDrive to the Brighton Ski Area, park in the huge parking lot on the far east end. The wall is visible from here. Here it gets tricky because one needs to follow a road (closed to regular traffic) and pass through a girl scout camp. Respect their privacy. The leaders will usually request climbers to bypass the trails where the scouts are currently located. A friendly pleasant attitude always helps!
Aim for the scree field left (east) edge where you can walk up old steep worn game or hiker trails. Some boulder hopping may be encountered. If somewhat "lost", the approach will require 30 minutes. Once you have it down, 10 minutes should do it! Aim for the "bigger" cliffs that are visible from parking lot. the exploration is half the fun, anyway.
Room for lots more fun!
