Description

The Jug Haul Wall is a secluded, dog-friendly sport climbing area with nice views of lower Millcreek Canyon. The routes are all jug hauls on skin friendly rock.

There is a ledge that bisects the wall. "Too Jug to Fail" starts on the ledge. Some people may feel better starting on the ledge for "Nipples are Necessary" but you miss the roof and sand dune section.

This is a different rock type than you usually climb in the Wasatch. It is wicked hard in some places. . . soft and flaky in others. The steeper routes have nice rails and pockets.

The bolts are long, fat and plentiful for your pleasure. If you are within the first dozen ascents there will be more sand and debris on the climbs.

Treat it like sandstone. Don't climb right after a storm.

Getting There

Drive 1.1 miles past Millcreek Canyon pay station, flip a U turn and park on the north side of the road in a slight pullout. It is just up stream from where the fence across the street ends. This is up canyon from the Rattle Snake Gulch trailhead and down canyon from the Stitches Wall
Jug Haul Wall is not visible from the road when trees are leafy.

The approach path begins at a low boulder and goes up and generally left crossing into the next shady gulley to the west. The trail switches back a few times to an outcropping and then to the base of the climbs. There is one small rock step. Approach takes about 10-15 minutes from the car and has some loose footing in spots. Low clearance dogs may have a harder time than others.

There are decades worth of old beer cans and bottles littered over the forest floor. Feel free to haul a few out with you.

Save the jugs! Purge the Spurge
