Neighbor Of Putterman is the spur of rock that used to connect the House of Putterman with the rest of the rock in the canyon. It lies directly west of the House of Putterman. The majority of the climbs on this cliff face north, so winter climbing is sometimes a little chilly, but summer offers the perfect combination of shade and sun. There are plenty of great handcracks and liebacks, but anchors are scarce so be creative!

Getting There 

When approching this formation, branch right from the Merrimac Butte sign in the wash and follow the 4x4 trail into the canyon. The House Of Putterman will be on your left side. Zig-zag up the scree hill to the base of the House of Putterman and walk 50 yards to the west, staying on the north side of the formation. You will see on your left side the first route, Puttermans Big Toe. This is a great right facing hand-sized dihedral.

Approach as you would for all other routes, towards the gap between the House of Putterman and the Neighbor of Putterman. Continue along the base of Neighbor of Putterman, a couple hundred feet past Fearless. The route is hidden until you are right under it, located around a large right-facing corner. A beautifully clean flake fills the center of the route, beginning 30 feet up on a huge ledge. There is a large boulder on the ledge directly at the base of the flake. It will be very obvious ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
