    North Face (The Wishbone) 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c A2+  Utah : Moab Area : ... : The Wishbone
    This climb ascends an obvious crack system on the north face. The climbing is really steep, which makes the positions and exposure exciting. Even though the climb is rather short (80'), you still end up placing a lot of pieces. This is a fun climb with a short approach to the top of a seldom-visited summit....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
