Eardley requires a fair bit of effort for a short technical section. Due to its proximity to Salt Lake, and the beauty of the technical section, it is one I recommend. The pools make it a good choice when it's hot. Due to its pothole nature, it has a very different character depending on the water level. Regardless of water level, it is charming.

There are two differnt approach options. Option 1, the regular route, is a bit long and detracts a bit from the day. Option 2, the shortcut approach, offers intricate and elegant route finding down to just when Eardley gets good. I would recommend Option 2 for most groups, it makes for a much more enjoyable day though does involve a bit of route finding and scrambling.
