Description

The route starts from Gemini Bridges Road in Little Canyon, climbing gradually up a vast expanse of sandstone. Continue straight at the intersection with Gold Bar and Little Canyon.

The grade is mellow for a bit longer until the junction with Rusty Nail. From here, things get more strenuous as the climb steepens.

This section tops out and starts a short downhill as the Gold Bar joins from the left. This part of the route is very steep and challenging all the way to the rim.

Enjoy the view and then continue on either Gold Bar Rim or Golden Spike Jeep Road.

The climb is crazy. Straight up the hillside. Problem is it's not so crazy that you can't just keep spinning and surging your way up.

There are a few markers to let you know you're headed the right direction, though you do wonder.
