The Billboard Trail Rock Climbing
Tyson Marshall pulling out onto the head wall.
and The Vortex
are accessed using this path. The trail is steep, loose, and not an altogether-pleasant experience.
The trail begins more-or-less straight up the slope on the north side of the canyon and quickly begins angling to the east.
Drive up canyon from the Timpanogos Cave National Monument visitors center until you reach the entrance to the Sawmill Picnic Area on the right. A short distance (approximately .2 miles) past the picnic area entrance is a small pullout on the right.
Park here and cross the road. Walk one hundred feet or so up canyon until you spot the wall at the base of a loose dirt/scree field. At the top of the trail, 200 feet below the cliff, please resist the urge to go straight up the dirt gully to the base of the cliff. There is now a subtle trail out right that takes you to the ridge and back towards the base of the cliff with a switchback. Its a much more solid trail and will save you significant headache and energy.

To the right of the two big roof systems is a slightly, and continuously, overhanging wall properly called the Grid Wall with big block in the middle. Erection starts on the block and passes a small roof at 50 feet. Continuous, interesting climbing on pockets and edges. EE would probably get three stars in the Front Range, but even in AF its a good moderate on a crag with lots of things that are far from moderate. ...[more] Browse More Classics in Utah
