Description 

This area is being developed really quick by some of the locals. It's just west of Ephraim (15 miles south of Maple Canyon)and has a little bit of everything right now. It is sunny nearly all day until late afternoon with easy access. Lots of bouldering and rumors of more routes being put up (4-8 already existing. Some of the rock can be crumbly but once u clean it up, it yields hidden opportunities for great boulder problems and routes!

Getting There 

Turn right at the Maverick in Ephraim and travel west for several miles. You will go through a big S curve and then hit a straight road. Take the last right turn before the road turns straight south. (I'll update this when i can get the exact distances)
