The obvious spiked ridge connecting the right edges of the Red Slab and the Ed and Terry Wall. Mostly new bolted routes with a few short, hard, trad lines thrown in for fun.

Most of the routes face N/NW so it is pretty shady most of the day.

Getting There 

From the parking lot stay right on the paved road. When you see a short, blocky, concrete structure on your left you can also see an obvious trail leading up the hill on your right (the start has an upside-down 'Y' aspect to it). Take this trail and branch left at the first intersection. Follow this to the top of the Red Slab and then scramble on 4th class terrain (following a fixed rope) up to Ed and Terry Ridge.

Be careful of loose rocks that can easily be dislodged onto climbers on Red Slab. It only takes 5 more minutes to reach the wall once you are at the base of Red Slab.

See the picture of the approach trail.

A mostly 5.6 or 7-ish route with one harder move and a bit of that exposed feeling.The route climbs past 4 bolts on a slab to a sloping ledge between slabs. The crux is getting up onto the next slab. The harder bit is a little overhung and takes some balance to get up.After an exposed-feeling couple of moves to the sixth bolt it's easy cruising to the anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
