If remote granite slabs are your thing, come here. If hiking for 2-4 hours, and then bushwhacking for another 30-60 minutes is your thing, come here. In it's defense, the slabs are impeccable, the routes are all sport routes (at least the documented routes), the rock is surprisingly clean, the views are magnificent, and the exploration possibilites are endless. The routes climb a series of slabs separated by 5-15 minutes of hiking. Some slabs are unclimbed, otheres have 1-2 routes on them. They tend to face the southwest, and even up this high, they tend to be warm. Bring bail slings as the anchors tend to be 2 bolts with slings and rap rings. The climbs are climbed so seldom that all the slings I encountered were bad.

Getting There 

Approach from the Big Willow/Little Willow trail (see Big Willow Directions). Find the faint (lol) trail that branches off of the main trail about 1/4 mile before The Guardian. Bushwhack into the cliffs, find your route and climb.

Trail Legs 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Jon's Hideout
This buttress is on the lower tier and is in the middle of 2 others buttresses.This buttress has 2 routes on it and this is the right route. Trail Legs climbs just off the arete using thin smears and the occasional sidepull to gain the 1st bolt. Bolt 2 is a little high, but from there the protection is good. Thin edges and pea-sized crystals with the odd patina edge thrown into the mix create a fun consistent climb. Watch the rice-y surface. It wasn't too bad, but there were sections. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
