One of the more technical climbs in the area and bit of a challenge on the way down too. A bit more rocky than most of Park City area. Fun challenge on the way up and also a quick access to a lot of other areas too. If you want to have a climb that will require good line choices and a bit more skill than the other climbs in the area check it out.
