Description 

A very short wall with several bolted routes and some short cracks that can be lead on gear. A little off the well-beaten Rock Canyon path, this place can offer moments of solitude.

Getting There 

Past The Kitchen and just past two cement retaining walls on your north (left), cross the stream and hike up the left fork of the trail to the crag.

A short, juggy route up a slightly overhanging arete. Getting to and clipping the second bolt is probably the crux.The rock is mostly solid up through the bolts and then broken and chossy past the last bolt to the anchor. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah

The Appendage is a good place for new climbers or leaders for short, fun climbs. Most of the climbs can be toproped and there is enough variation that climbers who are a little more experienced won't just be bored. The climbs are short, though.

I really enjoyed doing the easy trad lines on the main face between each fin. These should be one of the main attractions of this place.

James,
There is nothing funny about falling to your death while setting up a TR. Maybe stay in the gym until you feel comfortable leading 5.8, that way you can safely get to the anchors for TR.

I've actually lead several times before, this time I just made a dumb decision to set up a toprope on a route that wasn't meant for toprope. It was actually Crispo Crack, and I didn't realize that it was a trad route until just a little while ago. And don't worry, I wasn't really in danger of falling to my death, I just had to be creative with my rappel to the anchors. Thank you for the concern tho, I need someone to help me out when I'm at my limits. :)
