Description 

This is the east side of the Coffin gully. It is west-facing, and somewhat broken appearance. The rock did not seem to be all that good on the areas I climbed. Good afternoon sun in the winter, and a close proximity to the Coffin. If the Coffin is packed, like it was today, explore over here.

Getting There 

Park in the Little Cottonwood lower canyon Park and Ride. Locate the climber's trail in the lot's northeast corner (directly north of the restroom). Follow this trail east until you are directly below the obvious shaped Coffin Buttress. Hike up towards The Coffin gully and pick your line on this west-facing slabbish area. The routes start at the southern end and continue up to the culmination of the gully.

Approach as if going to the Coffin. Send Hi I'm the best guide EVAR! all the way to the first anchors looker's left at the high ledge. Drop your pack and rack up here. Look straight up to the steep Texas-shaped flake. Initially clip Tony's first bolt about 40 ft off the belay (5.4ish) or bring some small to medium gear for the slab if you like. Shortly after Tony's bolt you will see a bolt straight up the steeper slab that is close. Climb the slab above the bolt to a .5-.75 placement protecting ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
