rock climb - the slips followed by wmc picnic - May 25, 2015

The WMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the WMC Liability Waiver, online registration is required for all in person WMC events.
Salt Lake Slips proves that good things can come in small packages. There are only a handful of routes here, but I'll take this sort of quality over quantity any time. Immediately to the left, there is a 40' cave area with some wicked sport climbs. Up and to the right are several moderate bolted routes. Participants are required to wear helmets when climbing or belaying with the WMC. After climbing , join the club at Storm Mountain Picnic area for the WMC Memorial Day Picnic and Potluck. Salt Lake Slips is about 2.45 miles up Big Cottonwood Canyon on the left side. Getting There: Enter through the Storm Mountain Picnic Area, cross the bridge, and walk west past the Storm Mountain Amphitheater. Go up the hill, turn south, and follow the trail (turning southwest) to the top of the gully above the Slips. Descend the gully to the routes. During very low water periods, you can park on the road opposite the climbs and safely cross the river. However, crossing the river at any other time is extremely dangerous; people have died attempting it.
