Description 

As for the Dry Wall. On the frontage road, before one arrives at the Dry Wall, you almost immediately see the only tower like formation tucked away by itself. It is south facing and one hears the train and truck traffic on nearby I-80. Rock quality is chossy cobble, but apparently cleaning up.

Getting There 

I-80 to Ranch Exit in Echo Canyon after passing Coalville east bound. Drive along the frontage road continuing East and it will be the south facing tower route on the north side of the highway.

Piercing The Nipple 5.12c 7b+ 27 IX- 27 E6 6b A0-1  Utah : Echo Canyon : The Pierced Nipple
This was apparently free climbed by Park City local Kevin Fosberg at 5.12b-c? As I once mentioned elsewhere, this is truly fun weirdness on conglomerate...not of the same rock quality as the Dry Wall. Originally climbed 5.8 and A0, this essentially climbs a bolt ladder up the south face until the angle decreases somewhat and then the first pitch ends at a ledge where a register (sign in and spray away) can also be found. Pitch #2 grovels up to the summit tower where old 1/4" bolts were fou...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
