Description

This part of the Swell is remote because it is the end of the road west, and loops north to connect into the Red Canyon Road.

Getting There

Same as for Muddy Creek Climbs. Take the North Temple Road to the turnoff sign for Handoo Arch (also spelled "Handu" on some maps), road is County 1012. In about 9 miles the road splits and you take County Road 1019 towards Reds Canyon and Handoo Arch. When you near Muddy Creek you will see Tomsich Peak Trail Head Kiosk. The tail follows the road north a short ways and then turn off and up a mining road that will circle the Butte. The mining road starts on the west side of Tomsich Butte and proceeds up and above the main Uranium Mine area on the south side. You stay on the road till it ends on the North East side of the Butte. You traverse up on poor rock and scree to a high ridge where there is a road that comes up from the North side of the Butte. This road goes up hill for about 300 feet and ends. The route is a weakness in a light brown rock band with a crack in it. One short pitch of 20 feet climbing. From there you use rock slabs to trend right to obtain a ledge that is below another 80 to 100 red rock band. The ledge traverses around to the north side of the Butte and ends in a Cave and a 15 foot boulder Problem (V0 to V1). After reaching the top of the boulder problem and get over a 2 to 3 foot space between boulders you are on the top. The true summit is on the south side of the Butte.
