Steort's Ridge, BCC

Steort's Ridge
5.6 Trad
3 pitches

Steort's Ridge is located in Big Cottonwood Canyon on the south side of the road just before the Storm Mountain campground. It is one of several climbs on the Dead Snag wall and is a Wasatch classic according to mountainproject.com.

I climbed this route years ago before I even knew what a cam was. I climbed it again this week on wednesday afternoon. This is a great route for beginning trad climbers and it is super fun! This route is shady in the afternoon and offers either a scramble walk-off or 3 rappels from established anchors.
