Description 

Faces West.

Getting There 

The wall is the 300 foot cliff band located across the road from the Hell Cave area about 25 yards South of the river and to the east of the Ovary. This wall looks like Abe's face as you drive down the canyon from Cannabis Wall. The skyline forms a silhuette of Abraham Lincoln's face.

Pitch 1 is .11a on thin edges with a belay at the top that you can pass with another few feet of climbing to the base of the next pitch. Pitch 2 is super fun, climbing a cool, steep bulge and is .11+. I thought this was the best pitch by a long shot. Easy scrambling to the base of pitch 3, where easy .8 climbing awaits. Pitch 4 has a fantastic crux, with loads and loads of teeny edges and just less than vertical aspect. There are several ways to do this one and if you pick the right sequenc...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah

hiked by this crag the other day to just check it out, it looks like there are several new lines, does anyone know anything about any of these new lines?

Climbed Suspect with Erik Gillis on 10/25. Definitely a classic. Had a little trouble finding the base of the climb, despite the exquisitely detailed description of "Abe's Face". It's directly across the river from the parking lot. Cross the river and angle up-canyon and you'll see it, marked by a prominent tree growing out of the rock by the second bolt.

Pitch 2 is where the action is. Pull the bulge/roof and keep going through the limestone slab. Definitely a little pucker factor. Plus, the lichen that covers the route gives it an LCC kitty-litter-esque quality. Overall, super fun classic multipitch in the heart of AF!

There is a new six pitch 5.9-5.10a climb up the center of this wall. It is a great climb. The repel can be tricky. Watch out for the sticker bushes that will hang up your rope when you try to pull it down. Also wear a helmet. There is lot's of loose rock and dirt.

There are A LOT of different variations to all of these climbs. Went up with the intention of climbing Suspect, and saw many other lines veering off. There were also a ton of climbs visible from pitch 3 that looked much harder than what I was on. Super cool area. Would love to know what was what.

Beware: Most of these routes have not been cleaned. There are still microwave sized rocks hanging on by a thread, bolts are not all secure and, if you do climb them, be prepared for a groveling dirt fest. They are still waiting to be cleaned and red-pointed by those who put them up. In time they will be posted here.
