About The Beach:

This wall was bolted by some B.D. boys in the early 90's. It lies directly above the rest stop on the east-bound lane of I-80. This is the rest stop, between Lakepoint and Kennecott, used to provide travellers a viewpoint of the big stinky lake. This rest stop is now closed. I imagine you could find other means to approaching this crag. It is visible from the road, as the only clean limestone (yellowish) wall that diagonals up and right. The cliff is about 70 feet tall. I don't know any of the routes names, but I do know the first route on the left is the easiest at about 5.10, the next is 5.10c, the next is around 5.11, and they get harder as they go right. If anybody know more information about this crag, please edit this. By the Way, approach this area with ninja like tactics, Kennecott will try to get you for tresspassing. I've been caught here three separate times, yet I didn't receive any monetary punishment. TDA If you go into lakepoint where the u-bend wall is, you will notice a dirt road heading north along the railroad tracks. If you have a jeep you can make it almost all the way to the wall. Be careful, it can get nasty. It gets you up there without really being noticed.
