Description Suggest change

A long wall of short but fun climbs on beautiful tacky granite. Grades range from 5.7 - 5.12 and will test you across several different styles.

Getting There Suggest change

Take the UTW trail to the left fork for Blues/Rhythm/Mid walls. Wander along the path for 5 minutes until you see a signed turn off on the right for Rhythm Cliff (just before the left turn for Blues Cliff). The freshly scrubbed wall will be obvious on the right.
