This is a private and shady area at the top of the Little Cottonwood rock areas. Especially good during the head of the summer, this area also offers ice climbing/ski mountaineering.

Getting There 

Park at the same parking lot as for Pentapitch and Coalpit Buttresses. Hike up the scary mountain bike trail and pass the trail as for Pentapitch and Coalpit. Instead, continue on the mountainbike trail unil you locate the end of a the drainage that leads up to Triangle Wall.The beginning of this drainage is somewhat hidden by trees. You will know you are on the right track, when you are in a boulder field that heads up to the drainage. Triangle Wall is best viewed from the road. It is the cliff with multiple angular roofs up and in the back of a gully. Approach time is approximately 45 minutes to an hour. You can also get to the Triangle wall by hiking to the base of Coalpit Buttress then traversing its base up and left (east or towards Snowbird).

LOTS OF FUN!!!P1 Pretty mello climbing (past a pretty, new bolt) to a smack-you-in-the-face slab. I found the left traverse after turning the roof a bit nerve-wracking. It made me wonder why the newer bolt was placed lower down and not right there. Nice bolted belay. I had a belay seat which made all the belays very nice.P2 Short left-facing and leaning corner. The crux seems like just getting started. Way fun and VERY free-able. Belay at some old pins that you can back up with sma...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
