Description

This is a seldom-visited crag with South, East, and North facing aspects.

Getting There

If entering the Creek, park in a pullout located on your right, 5.1 miles past Newspaper Rock.

There are now two established trails to this wall. To get to both, start from the cairned trail from the parking lot and cross the creek. Here, take note of some Cottonwoods or other landmarks, because the deproach can get confusing on the way out. Follow the faint trail system to a prominent trail crossing the main field up to the base of the cone of the buttress.

Trail to Shady Routes (Overthruster, Horse Crack): Continue on the established trail at base of talus cone, running parallel to wall. Look for cairns for a left turn and up well-beaten cairned trail. If you hit the fence you've gone too far.

Trail to Sunny Routes (Cow Crack, Trick or Treat): Shortly after the trail becomes talus/rock, take a sharp left / switchback up a well-cairned trail. Steep and loose, but very direct. This pops you out at The Spell and Jeckyl & Hyde.

Despite years of grazing, there is still a significant amount of cryptobiotic soil around the talus cone. Take your time and follow either of the semi-established trails rather than trampling pristine desert.
