Description 

A sun- and wind-swept crag facing south and west. If you need to warm up on a chilly day this is a good option in the afternoon. Otherwise this area will be shady in the am so you can be there on a hot day up to around 2:00pm. There are many potential lines here with real quality and great rock. All of the new lines (as of 9/7/15) are really super examples of Jungle climbing; steep and thoughtful on aretes and edges.

Getting There 

Follow the same directions that you would to reach the Pandora Area. Then continue to drive down the same logging road for another 300 meters past what looks like impassable fallen trees (this is an easy 2 X 2 road) to the "edge." No mere mortal in the biggest monster truck would choose to go farther. There are pull outs to park and plenty of room to turn around. Hike down the road a few feet and see a faint trail heading in to the forest. This is the line to take if heading to the south end of the wall. The cairns will lead you to a down chute with a fixed line just at the south side of the Banshee Perch. The more northerly lines are better reached by continuing over the steep edge of the road to a carin and old power line glass insulator. SW here following cairns again through the forest but quickly to the edge. Then carins down through the talus to the crag. Or, walk further down the steep road and cut back sharp left when you reach the same elevation as the cliffs base. Car to crag 9 minutes. See area topo picture. Between Pandora and The Banshee Wall Areas on the east side of the road there is an entrance to a meadow with a superb campsite! It has a fire ring and stumps to sit on. This site is within easy walking distance of this area as well as Pandora.

Unlike most Jungle lines, not at the start or the end, but dead center and the crux will most certainly work you. Once you get into the .75 finger lock, the grind will go straight forwardly. It is that mid-way transition that will make you wish for another holiday....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
