The Frontera is a very small, steep wall located on the North side of the road right next to the National Forest sign.

Getting There 

Going uphill, head past Box Canyon and look for National Forest sign and the Frontera on the right. If you cross the bridge and reach the camping you have gone too far. Park below the wall and walk 20 feet.

Make some pocket moves past two huge watermelon sized cobbles to the crux which involves a bomber kneebar, and some bad slopers.Since this route is short, and it's very difficult to clip the last bolt, an attentive belay is required to keep a falling climber from hitting the ground. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah

Does anyone have info for the routes to the right of the overhang? There's a trail maybe 20 m to the right of the Frontera that goes up to some easier climbs.

They're in the new maple guidebook by Knezek.
