Some of the better and less eliminanty problems on...


The Cliffside Boulder is the large graffitied boulder at the southern end of the lower boulder field. Cliffside holds a few decent problems worth doing, and as many eliminant problems as you can come up with. Combine this boulder with the nearby Hidden Rock, and you could put together a nice after work circuit. The landing at Cliffside is flat, however it slopes away, and many problems traverse at least a little bit, so a spotter is nice in order to move pads around.

I have listed some of what I thought were the better lines, however the blue Ogden guidebook has pretty vague descriptions, so if any names or info is wrong please comment and I will correct it.

Getting There 

Park at the top of Lake Street and take the first path on the right up into the lower boulder field. Once in the lower field, follow the main trail south for maybe 200 yards, passing the Tooth on your right, and Hidden Rock on your left. Cliffside is the big graffiti covered boulder on the left.

The blue Ogden guide says to traverse the seam north to south, and top out in the scoop...Not really sure what that means. This is the best way I found that felt about the grade listed in the book. Start left hand on the arete, and right hand on the good block. Traverse about mid height on crimps and pinches until you drop down to a good edge just left of the graffiti. From here move up around the graffiti, then continue traversing right to the ramp. Walk up the ramp to the far right corner...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
