The Jug Haul Wall is a secluded, dog-friendly sport climbing area with nice views of lower Millcreek Canyon. The routes are all jug hauls on skin friendly rock.

There is a ledge that bisects the wall. "Too Jug to Fail" starts on the ledge. Some people may feel better starting on the ledge for "Nipples are Necessary" but you miss the roof and sand dune section.

This is a different rock type than you usually climb in the Wasatch. It is wicked hard in some places. . . soft and flaky in others. The steeper routes have nice rails and pockets.

The bolts are long, fat and plentiful for your pleasure. If you are within the first dozen ascents there will be more sand and debris on the climbs.

Treat it like sandstone. Don't climb right after a storm.

Getting There 

Drive 1.1 miles past Millcreek Canyon pay station, flip a U turn and park on the north side of the road. An unmarked chain link Scout camp fence is on the south side. This is up canyon from the Rattle Snake Gulch trailhead and down canyon from the Stitches Wall. Wall is not visible from the road when trees are leafy.

The approach path begins at a low boulder and goes up through the grove of trees then up and left across into the next shady gulley to the west. The trail switches back a handful of times to an outcropping and then to the base of the climbs. Approach takes about 10-15 minutes from the car and has some loose footing in spots. Low clearance dogs may have a harder time than others.

There are decades worth of old beer cans and bottles littered over the forest floor. Feel free to haul a few out with you.

Save the jugs! Purge the Spurge

After climbing here yesterday I have a few comments about the area. A lot of effort was put into this place and the MP page for it is very well done, however the climbing here is awful and very unsafe. The rock is completely rotten and falling apart. I was not comfortable trusting hands or feet as several holds crumbled without putting much weight on them. I also do not think it is good to paint bolts in bright colors that stand out. I appreciate all the effort put in to developing new areas but I would not recommend climbing here.

Caliche and hardpan are synonymous. It is a type of "limestone" (carbonate) that forms via leaching and deposition from zone A to B in the soil horizon of arid areas. Eventually it becomes dense and impervious, but never thick or cliff forming- it is afterall a relatively thin horizontal layer of lithified rock buried within the soil. Geologically, the jug haul wall would best be described as choss:) (probably just a rotten chunk of limestone technically classified as the park city or thaynes formation)

You're out of your element BigNooby. Perhaps leading 3rd class is more your cup of tea.

The harder routes are the best
Too Jug to Fail is steep and stemmy

Sassy Sister slim is sporty and airy.
