BETA PHOTO: The Saturn V wall as seen from the trail.


The crazy steep prow on the far right of all the walls. Above and behind the Tap wall. Get your seat belt nice and tight as this wall provides quite the ride!
Tic Tic Boom is a must do classic.
The lower slabs are steeper than they appear and the upper prow is one of the coolest spots in all of Rock Canyon.

Getting There 

Head up the galaxy trail until the first south facing prow of limestone appears on your right (near the top of the approach gully). Head around the toe of this prow and go up the steep and loose gully. A rope may get fixed on this soon to make it easier. The landing needs to be built but belay bolts will be added soon as well.

Pitches one and two could probably be combined but linking two and three would result in hideous rope drag. Pitch 1: The tricky climbing starts right away and the whole pitch is pretty stiff. The holds are inobvious. You can get a knee bar in under the micro roof. Belay at a small ledge. 40' 5.10c, 5 bolts to chains.Pitch 2: Not quite as technically difficul...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
