Steep, quartzite slab climbing followed by jugs to the top. Thin, crimpy climbing through the first two bolts to a clipping hold for the third bolt, followed by mostly large holds above. A mantle onto a narrow ledge awaits after the fifth bolt.


The west-most (right-most) of the routes in the Ed and Terry Gully. It is the one of two bolted routes and is the only route located on a west-facing slab. After traversing from the main Ed and Terry Wall through a small gap, head downhill for 20 feet and then scramble south and up to the belay area.


6 bolts, chain anchor. If top roping after leading consider extending the anchor point about three or four feet to avoid rubbing on an edge below the anchor.


After many years, I re-visited this quality and compact climbing area. Scenic Turnout was originally climbed in 1990 by Chad Leblanc and I. I hand drilled the first two bolts on lead (crux), and the rest of the pitch was protected with gear (tcu’s, stoppers). We called it Sticky Fingers 5.10-. Although obscure due to it’s location, it’s a good pitch. Since repeating some of Jim’s Little Cottonwood Canyon routes in my youth I have had deep respect for him. I think it’s cool that we have a 1st ascent together even though our efforts were almost two decades apart. Apr 2, 2013
I tip my hat to you Kent. Well done 'bro. Great location and vision. Nobody does trad or runouts any more so I added bolts for those without balls. I concur on the grade. Perhaps we should climb together? May 23, 2016
