One of the newest additions to the Jungle, this area lies about 5 to 10 minutes past the Upper Jungle area and shares the same approach. A good sized crag with cracks and steep faces. Rock quality varies, but is generally solid with the wall ranging from 35 to 60 feet in size.

Getting There 

Drive past the Upper Jungle parking area through the switch backs until the road flattens out. Twenty meters on the right is a turnout marked with a large white limestone cairn. Pull in here. Across or south of the road is a U.S.F.S. orange "cutting unit boundry" sign. Behind this tree is a well engendered trail across the forest floor to the end of the Upper Canopy area. It is flat and easy with a minimum of talus. It terminates at a very large rock cairn. Look back north at the easy and short descent through talus to good climbing.

If climbing and parked at the Upper Jungle parking lot, following cairns past the Lucy in the Sky. Continue across the talus of the Upper Jungle until you reach a small incline. Follow this to its apex. The Upper Canopy begins here with the mixed route Monkey Hips and Rice. The area is the smaller, most remote region of the wall.

This IS the real deal! Sustained climbing on great rock and a beautiful location. Did I mention the easy approach? The start is hard and bouldery, but the finish is bold and scary! If you want a difficult but safe challenge, then this overhanging line is your project to work. And work you will! It is a beta intensive route that will talk long and hard to your brain and forearms....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
