Description 

Pitch #1: Climb the pillar clipping mostly DMM Glue Ins on good edges to a two bolt Glue-in chain anchor which should distinguish itself from most of the other routes in the area. 5.10a, 25m.
We had met some Loganites who kept saying this exclamatory response and it was noted by them that this was typical Logan-speak? Good Freakin' Gads!

Location 

We called this formation The Pillar Of Cache, as we found no other routes on this distinctive pillar when we first climbed here. To find it, set your odometer at the McDonalds in Hyrum...it is exactly 3.2 miles from there on your left. 10 second approach time...if approached from the unmarked dirt road that goes up toward the Pillar? Otherwise about a 5 minute walk to a flat pedestal perched right at the base of the climbing.

Protection 

QDs for 6 Glue-In bolts.

Found some nice jugs perfect for pulling the roof. get your balance, reach for them, and crank away. Needs a little housekeeping, but the rock is grippy and fantastic.
