Prominently visible from upper Lower Cottonwood Canyon (LCC), the 5,000-foot Coalpit Headwall is a highly coveted jewel of the Central Wasatch. The tour includes steep skiing, rope work, and a long, strenuous approach to Bells Canyon in a vast, rugged, and seldom-skied part of the Lone Peak Wilderness. Descend Bell’s Canyon to complete the scenic Wasatch Super Tour from White Pine Trailhead.
