I asked this in one of my other posts but the subject was differnent so no one answered it, But i was trying to figure out what this one area and the climbs in it are called and rated, the parking for it is almost exactly .5 miles from the flag pole at the vistor centeron a large pullout on the left. From there u walk about 75ft to one of the places where the stream crosses under the road after that its almost directly to ur right its slighty slabby and has a roof going through the middle of it its before the red corners and freedom wall but not in the guidebook.

if any one knows the name of this area or a person who i might contact to find out plz post, and srry for the hazy discription

Is it the little crag on the trail to the Hideaway. If it is, its the Beer Can Alley Crag (slab with a small roof), there's a 10b/c and a 11c.

Yeah I agree The climb with the small roof is a fun climb. It has about 5 or 6 bolts to chains. not very many people know about it. it is nice if every where is is crowed go there.

Hey I will be stoping in The SLC, provo, heber, UT area and was planning on trying to hit up some sport routes. It looked like the closest place that had an online topo. I can lead about in the mid .10's consistently but i'll be the only experienced climber. I found a few 5.8 and 9's but i just want to know is there any other area close by that is sport and easy for those who might be climbing for their first time outside.

The wall has a nice triangle shaped pattern to the face and sports a couple of good climbs with the potential of at least one more. The routes aren't that new.... they just never made it in the guide book.

I Have no idea what the names are but I wouldn't miss them if climbing in AF!

Iv'e posted the names of four climbs that have been done at Beer Can Alley, they are as follows from right to left as you face the wall, Corona 11 d FA Tom Bailey, O'douls 11c FA Randy Head, Sam Adams 10c FA Randy Head, and around the back side the cimmney is Beer Bong 5.2 R. FA unknown. The routes put up by Head were done in fall of 98 and Corona was put up in early winter 99.
