This area is actually not really known for its climbing, but rather for its skiing and snowboarding. Jon and I were actually out snowshoeing behind Brighton and Silver Lake. We had no intention of climbing. There is a lot of sun (bring sunscreen), but there are plenty of trees off the side of the slopes. As a general rule, you will have a fairly lengthy approach to reach any decent rock formations.

Getting There 

Head East up Big Cottonwood Canyon Road for 12.6 miles. Another .7 miles and you'll reach Brighton and the Solitude Nordic Center.

It gets its name because we first bouldered this while out snowshoeing. Spotted a nice line and went for it. We didn't have our climbing shoes, but that didn't stop us. Being that there was snow it worked out really well. The snow acted as the perfect (cold) crashpad.There are a couple of flakes, a few juggy holds and some thin fingers. There are some nice extensions as well....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
