Description:

This is the rock in the triangle formed between I-80, I-215, and an interchange between the two. The rock is easy to pick out, as it is the one with all of the graffiti. The west face is an easy scramble to the top. This is a nice 5.9 as there are some sketchy smooth areas, and a crack with some layback moves needed. At the moment, the top anchoring requires lots of webbing, or a few cams or nuts. When I did it, there is a spot to sling a 30 ft webbing around the boulder at the top, and then a 15 ft webbing around the top. It would be easy to set a few top anchors. Best place to park is the public parking at the dead end of s. Wasatch blvd. (3000 E, 2850 S) and then take the trail to the west across the first bridge, but go down to the west instead of accoss the second bridge.
