5.8 Wall is a very popular area in the canyon due to the easy approach and quality routes. All routes can be top roped making this a great spot for beginners. This has been a popular location from the early 50's. For some reason the routes were never named and have become known by their location on the wall.

This location is very close to the road so be careful and courteous.

Getting There 

5.8 Wall is located half a mile up the canyon from the waterfall. Park at Hole In The Rock pullout located .8 miles up the canyon and walk back down to the 5.8 Wall.

The reppel lines are relatively plumb and this route is basically the 2nd rap-line off of the Another Friend route that drops you into the 5.8 gully. The climb is a much longer 5.8 trad route than those on the main 5.8 wall. 100' further up the same gully and a short and easy 10' scramble to a semi-flat belay station to the beginning of the climb. The route starts with a small roof (about 15' off the deck) and goes st...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
