Description 

This small quartzite crag has been bolted with the intention of mixed climbing (i.e. dry tooling), though it provides a good option for closely-bolted sport climbing as well. The crag catches morning shade and gets afternoon sun by about 1:00pm. The cave is so named for the large amount of graffiti in it; consequently, it occasionally attracts a random assortment of non-climbers, including hikers, cavers, random kids scrambling around, etc. Because of this, it also collects trash sometimes, so please plan to carry out discarded wrappers or a beer can or two to keep the place reasonably nice.

Getting There 

From the 22nd Street trailhead at the eastern terminus of 22nd Street, head up and right (southerly) from the parking lot and switchback left/north on the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, following small trails up toward the obvious large drainage with a square cave about two-thirds of the way up (visible from the trailhead).

The trail becomes faint at the base of the drainage. Head straight up the drainage, avoiding the first chimney via ramps on the right, then traversing back to the drainage. Just below the cave, a short wall blocks further progress which can be easily surmounted with 2 or 3 moves that park you at the base of the crag.

Start up the slab then begin stemming to the right once above the roof. Move up the clean face on good horizontals (pumpy) and negotiate a couple harder moves at the 4th bolt. Steeper than it appears....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
