This is the south facing "cave" area on ...


The east face of Higher Education Ridge is the cliff seen through the trees above and just to the northwest of the large parking area (with the drive-around pine). Except for the routes in the so-called “cave” area, the rock here is generally slabby and moss covered, so not a lot has been done. The routes in the “cave” area are overhanging, but the “cave,” which is maybe only 10 feet deep (it appears to be an old prospect), is not a feature that any of the routes ascend. If headed here, consider bringing a plastic bag to pick up the inevitable beer can or two – it’s a known party spot.

Getting There 

The routes in the “cave” area are about 200 feet up the scree field at the northwestern end of the large parking area; just plod up the slope (pick a trail) and in 5 minutes you’ll stumble on to the “cave.”

I’m guessing Mr. B ripped one of his favorite pairs during the FA. Lycra Eater jams the obvious left leaning hand crack, which pinches off at a bulge protecting entrance to the finishing dihedral. Continue up the dihedral (ignoring the tan-colored anchors on the right wall) to a set of dark-brown colored ring anchors maybe 25 feet higher....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
