Juniper Wall Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Juniper Wall 1. Time Crunch 5.8 2. Child's Play 5....
Juniper Wall has six bolted routes ranging from 5.8 to 5.11c. The wall faces west and is partially shaded on the upper section by several evergreens. The upper section of the wall where Time Crunch and Child's Play are located is quite nicely terraced for belaying.
The most straightforward way
: Park at (what I remember to be) the second pullout on the right side of the road as you head up canyon from the Timp Cave Visitor Center (.5 miles according to the guide book see here
Cross the road and start uphill at the trail directly across from the pullout.
The better way: Park as for Hell Cave
in the next, very large pullout on the right (see here
). Cross the road at the west (down canyon) side of the pullout and walk past the scree field. Scramble up a slightly steep bit and onto a trail in the midst of some trees. Follow this trail west as it heads gradually uphill. Eventually you'll come to the point of a buttress. Juniper Wall
is the west face of the buttress.

It may be the technical crux as well, although my partner thought a bit between the third and fourth bolts was hard...[more] Browse More Classics in Utah
