  • Description 

    Sunny, south-facing crag with surprisingly good rock and a very short approach. Local artisan, and veteran choss guzzler, Brian in SLC gives this crag his full endorsement!

    Getting There 

    Drive past Snowbird entry 4 until you reach the HellGate Condos. Crag is located directly across from condos. If you can't find this crag, may I suggest another sport that doesn't require a sense of direction.

    There are now 4 bolted routes on this wall only a stones throw from the parking lot directly across from the, Green, Hellgate Condos.

    The Rock is a very good mix of quartzite and Limestone. In addition to bolting the 2 new routes Greg and Luke's routes have been cleaned up and all 4 are very fun.

    The routes from left to right are actually Driver's Ed, Red Devil, Road Rage and Detoured.

    i went to this wall last weekend but couldn't find a trail, i'm pretty sure i was at the right location, directly across from the condos but i didn't hike around to look for bolts so i just went to hellgate up the road. i would still like to climb this wall, so any any info would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    This wall is in the parking lot across from the Condos, you can belay from your car seat.

    There is a big gravel parking area directly across from the condos. Go to the edge of the parking area, walk 20 feet through the bushes until you bump into the wall, look up, see bolts, climb. Intruder has the easiest approach in the Wasatch, but this is a close second.

    Found a helmet here today (Sunday July 30th). Text me with a description at 801-979-5572 so I can hopefully get it back to its rightful owner.
