This is a nice place to climb some high quality moderates on good quality limestone. Fairly short approach when compared to the walk to the Cathedral. The approach time is approximately 20 minutes.

Gets sun until early afternoon.

Getting There 

Same driving directions as for the Cathedral, Wailing Wall, Basilica, and Logan Crag. From the cow pens, hike along the stream bed under large cottonwood trees. After about 10 minutes, you will pass the Logan Crag on your right. Shortly after passing this crag, take a left and head up the wash toward the Sumo Wall and the rest of the Welcome Springs crags. Look for the first prominent rock wall on the left, this is the Sumo Wall. To be sure...look for the face at the base of the wall. The approach trail is hidden somewhat behind a large boulder on the left.

Climbing Season

For the Welcome Springs area.

A decent route with a great start, a tricky middle and an easy finish on suspect rock.From the ledge, easy edges lead to a shouldery crux in a shallow, slightly overhanging dihedral. Pull onto the almost vertical middle section using good holds and grab a no-hands rest below the second crux. Traverse slightly right and then move back left to a good sidepull jug. Follow jugs over a final bulge and then enjoy generous flakes to the top.First 2/3 of the route is not as sharp as the rest of the r...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
