A steep, pocketed wall that is nicely shaded by large evergreen trees.

Even on a summer afternoon the routes other than Terraformed are comfortably climbable, with perhaps only the last ten feet or so in the full sun (Terraformed gets full afternoon sun).

Getting There 

After hiking up the short trail from the paved path and turning right at the large, old stump, head right along the trail that parallels the cliff.

You'll pass a number of bolted lines in the Eavesdown Docks area before crossing above a narrow talus field at the base of the cliff. The next wall you encounter after crossing the talus is the Persephone area.

A slightly tricky start leads to a narrow ledge about halfway up. An initially blank-seeming face reveals glorious pockets and leads to a wonderful and intimidating roof with some balancy moves using tricky-to-find handholds. The final bit to the chains requires a bit of thought and body positioning.Going straight over the roof is more rewarding, but a bit harder than following the path of least resistance....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah

The three center lines on this wall are all business between the last bolt and the chains. Be ready to fight for the finish or prepare for heartbreak!
