Gate Buttress Area Recreational Lease: Climbs on Church Buttress above vault remain closed MORE INFO >>>


Freedom Wall is not like its cousin. No slabs here. There is the left wall which is steep and tricky, and then the right wall which is not steep, but not slabby. It is more like thin crystals and balance-y climbing. All in all a very pleasant area to climb.

Getting There 

Follow the Approach for Lisa Falls Buttress. Continue up the drainage to the left of the climbs on Lower. As you climb up into the upper gully, you will encounter a couple of tricky slabs. One on the left and one on the right of the stream. The lowest of the climbs are before the right-side slab. The rest are beyond. The climbs are spread out over a 15-minute area.

After the slab scramble on the right of the stream, you can cross over to the left again. Hike past a boulder and the first line of bolts (3) are this climb. Steep climbing and funky moves are the name of the game. Lieback up the diagonalling rows of rock to gain the top. Love that double knob, near the top. Clips seemed to be a little strenuous, but not too hard. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah

There are a number of routes in this area that aren't listed on here. Right at the top of the falls (the area with rappel anchors on the right to rap down the falls) there are at least three bolted lines immediately on the left (these three are before going past the big boulder to Freedom Fighter, De Oppresso Liber, and Unknown). There are also some bolted lines past the Freedom Fighter trio, but it was pretty dark when I checked, so I couldn't tell how many routes for sure. I checked an online guide for the Wasatch Range, and it didn't have them listed either. The bolts and chains looked pretty new on them as well. Anybody know what any of these routes are? I'll try to post pictures later on.

We tried the route closest to the falls (scramble up until you're level with the rappel anchors on the right side of the falls, then go about 40 to 50 feet further into the canyon; it's the first bolted route on the left; 4 bolts, plus chains), thinking it was Freedom Fighter. We were wrong. DEFINITELY not a 5.10b. Someone before us had seemingly done the same thing, and left a biner on the 4th bolt. We worked it for a while at the end of the day, but couldn't get it (we also got stuck at the 4th bolt, though the move above the 2nd bolt takes some work as well). After giving up for the night, I went back a couple days later to try again and I finally got it. It's short, but it's got a couple of pretty tough, muscly moves (the move right above 2nd bolt is ~11d, move above the 4th bolt is ~12a). Besides those two moves, the rest is probably a sustained 11a/b. Personally, I would have called it a 5.12a, but I'd love to hear somebody else' feedback on it that's done it. Pump fest for sure.

The route right to the right of the above mentioned looked like it only had 2 bolts at the bottom, but it ran into a crack that disappeared around a roof, so I'm guessing it's a mixed trad route. Info on that one would be great too.
