This limestone cliff located across from Schoolroom Wall does not see very much traffic. This is because there are only a couple routes located on so-so rock above a short but strenuous hike. Most people would just assume go up to Schoolroom to get mileage on the area's best quartzite. Really, you are only going to hike up there for one climb, "Born to Run," which is the prominent crack through the roof and diagonal up the face.

The Seven is north facing, but might see a little evening sun in the summer. As a result, it typically seeps in winter well into the spring, becoming climbable after about May.

Though the hike is strenuous, it is worth it, since the area is a nice relaxing place to hang out, up on the hillside, with good views of the bench. The rock, seemingly low quality limestone, does provide for nice holds and some great movement on "Born to Run," but anytime you have to jam, it can be rather painful.

Getting There 

Park at the top of 27th street. From there follow the trail up the hillside until you intersect with the Bonneville Shoreline Trail (the major trail running north and south, which should be well marked). Once below the Seven, scramble straight up the loose, steep hillside to the base of wall.

The obvious roof crack on the Seven. Better left (more fun) as a Top Rope problem, though it has been climbed on lead. If you do choose to lead it, realize that apparently perfect placements might rip out of the soft, fractured, crystalized cracks and fall at the lip may be bad.Climb up to the crack (easy), make some painful jams (hard), crank the lip (crux 1) and follow the crack up the face. Two-thirds of the way, you'll encounter another, more technical, crux....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
