This is the large northeast facing slab visible from Interstate 15 and is roughly 200' high at it tallest point with an arcing left-facing corner system on the right a prominent landmark.

The climbing here is characterized by low angle slab climbing with embedded pebbles and cobbles and is entirely bolt protected. Some of the older routes still have their original 1/4" bolts so be warned and be careful; newer routes have 3/8" or larger bolts and tend to have better protection.

Getting There 

From the turn-off head back east then north following the road along the train tracks until reaching a parking area. The approach takes 5-10 minutes from the parking area.
