White Wave Wall Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: White Wave Wall 1 Naked Nebula 5.12a 2 Naked Knuck...
Cool looking wall - it looks just like a big tidal wave. Starts slabby and easy and then steepens into a burly overhang. This isn't a huge crag but there are several good routes.
Park at the Gray Cliffs parking area, 1.7 miles up canyon from the visitor center. Follow the paved trail until it turns into a dirt trail that goes up the hill to crags. This is the Hard Rock
area. Follow the trail up canyon (along the base of the crags) past a couple of crags. You will walk past the south face of Hard Rock
to White Wave Wall
(which you can't miss - it looks like a white wave). If you get to the grayish Escape Buttress
, you have gone too far.

A really enjoyable jug haul with a remarkably airy lower-off or rappel. The Edge of Chaos has some exciting, hard moves interspersed with good rests.Get past the initial two bolts by classic AF pocket pulling over the starting overhang. The start is a bit tricky because the feet are thin, and after the first obvious ones, the correct pockets/jugs are a bit hard to find.Continue up and right on less-than-vertical terrain to the third bolt, and then things get steeper. There are some fun ...[more] Browse More Classics in Utah
