DescriptionDrytool up the rock just left of the ice (M2/3ish), past 2 or 3 bolts (there are 3 bolts there, but sometimes the top one is covered in ice) and then traverse right onto the ice to finish on Pipe Dream left side.
A good intro to ice and/or mixed climbing.
Some call this area Pipe Dream (all of the water comes from a big ol' pipe a few hundred feet up), and others (the Wasatch mixed climbing guide) call it the Kitty Litter Wall.
LocationThe area where this route is located is alternately called the Kitty Litter Wall and the Pipe Dream wall.
To get to the wall, park in the west parking lot of Canyon View Park, near the (incredibly nice) public toilet. The ice is visible from the parking lot. Walk west along a paved footpath until you see a bridge. Cross the bridge and continue to walk west. After a minute or two, you should be able to barely see the top of some ice over the trees. Turn right (north) off the trail (there used to be "No Trespassing" signs, but not any more) and make your way to the wall.
Just left of the pure ice line Pipe Dream on the left side of the ice wall. Two or three bolts (depending on how much ice there is) should be visible.
