Wasatch Aid Notes
A few years ago I was trying to find a few aid lines around SLC and had a hard time piecing together the good options out there. After finding some info in guidebooks, MP, ST, UtahClimbers, etc, I had a good starter list of lines to aid not too far from SLC. I saved this on my MP profile page so that I could find it later. Earlier this year I moved out of state and since I won't be using it anymore was going to delete it, but am posting it to the aid/big wall forums so others that may be looking for lines to practice aid on in LCC/BCC can use it. Some routes are better than others, some are mainly free lines that only should be aided in the off season, and some are aid lines that would be awesome if someone freed them. Take the list with a grain of salt rather than bashing me for posting it. I just wanted to save someone else the time of piecing together a list.
Disclaimer: Avoid aiding popular routes during busy times. Also some of the dedicated aid routes may not go clean and require iron. Check their descriptions first.
