This is the only "sport" route at Pete's Rock. Climb up an easy vegetated crack to a flake. Reach up for the right-diagonalling crack and continue up to a rest ledge at the first bolt. Pull the small roof to a hidden second bolt. Clip the third bolt under the big roof up top, reach for the jugs and pull up to the anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah

Back in the day, each of the "established" routes had a number painted at the bottom. These numbers were assigned based upon difficulty, with 1 being the easiest, and 15 being the most difficult. From left to right, this is the order: 14 2 9 8 1 4 3 10 11 12 13 15 7 6. The boulder traverse starts at the base of 4 and finishes past the base of 6. Now that the painted numbers are gone, it is difficult to determine what is what, but it looks more natural.

Loved this place!

Close to the parking lot, easy/safe to set up a top rope, at least one good climb available for beginners like my son and I. Nice view. We loved it!

Lovely place to top rope solo. There are 5 anchors (from what I saw) on the main rock (looker's right of the chimney). Each of them had a line which would go in the 5.8 to 5.9 range. There are also variations to make them more difficult.

Also, pretty simple to access the hangars from the top. Bring some extra cordalette to rig them. Only had a very small problem with choss; a few smaller rocks fell when pulling the rope after rappelling.
