Description 

Two distinct personalities on opposite walls.

The wall on the left (east) of the alcove is slightly overhung and consists of burly, occasionally desperate climbing.

The wall on the right (west) of the alcove is lower-angled and water-polished, leading to balancy climbing easier than that found on the opposite wall.

A good summer afternoon and evening crag because it's in the shade when nearby The Membrane is in the sun.

Getting There 

Park at The Membrane 3.9 miles up canyon. Cross the river on the large log.

Walk up hill to your left, keeping right as the wall curves to the right and uphill.

Fifty or sixty yards from the main Membrane area a small alcove is found.

Climbing Season

For the American Fork Canyon area.

Weather station 0.1 miles from here

Exile (11d), Harder than it looks. Intriguing combination of sublime slopers and funky pinches. Stick clip the first bolt if you are at all timid. I started this route the same way you would start Wilderness. This route is harder than License to thrill(11c at membrain) and easyer than Wilderness(12a/b one route to the left). I call it 11d, and I give it 2 out of three stars. It is a great route to do after License to thrill but before moving on to the harder crimps of Wilderness. Great addition to the wall!

I never knew what the route on the right was called, but I agree that .11d is a good rating for it. Sweet little line. I enjoyed it.

What is the route to the right of Fern Gully?

It is kind of on its own piece of rock. It's about 5 bolts, most of them being easy slab until a thin section to the chains.

That route to the right feels like a .10c to me? Maybe a .10d. Whatever it is, it is definitely harder, and steeper than it looks - which seems to be the theme for this area.
