  • Area Description 

    This area contains routes on the eastern portion of the Black Peeler Buttress. Routes face southeast, east & northeast.

    The “Peeler Face” has historically been the main attraction to this buttress. It is located on the lower southeast face. The rock is mostly steep and featureless, lending itself to aid routes and very technical free routes. The approach is a little steep when you near the base of the wall. But it isn't a very long hike.

    The routes further up the hill gradually wrap around to face east and northeast. The approach to these areas is incredibly long and arduous. The soil is loose, vegetation is thick and some routes require 4th Class climbing on a slab to reach their starts.


    Park at the same dirt parking lot used to access Coalpit Buttress and The Great White Icicle. This parking area is located on the south side of Little Cottonwood Road near an old power generator building and a bridge. Cross Little Cottonwood Road and walk northwest up a dirt road until it takes a hairpin turn. Continue west on a trail through the woods until you reach the buttress. Hike northeast along the base of the buttress until you reach your desired route.


    This area was mostly developed in the 1980s by a variety of climbers using various tactics.

    All The Way Over Here By Ourselves, Bitches! WI5 M6 R  Utah : Wasatch Range : ... : Peeler Face
    Named after watching the daily gong show on the GWI from across the road. We spotted 6 separate parties on the ice bombing each other, and one more descending, all at the same time! Entertainment at it's finest! See photo for details on the location. Pitch One: Climb a low angle ice smear up to the headwall and belay on some old bolts from a summer rock route. Very moderate climbing, but unprotectable in the conditions that we found. In thicker conditions, solid pro may be able to be placed...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
