Crux is below roof. Super fun. Has it all.


Route is lookers left of the apex of The Brighton's Frighten Wall. Climbs the obvious orange streak.

A most curious series of protection. But the moves are all there.

Best 5.9 boulder problem in the Wasatch? Short but sweet moves on impeccable rock. Protects well, just make sure to have some small cams.

Fun route with some cool moves, still needs a quick link at the anchors. Easy walk off to the left
