Description 

This area is barely up Cedar Canyon. It is soft, slabby sandstone, which makes the area very exciting (and scary) to climb. This area is east facing and therefore gets the morning sun and the afternoon shade. Usually this place isn't too busy, maybe just a few adventurous locals in the evenings.
Communication is a little difficult because Highway 14 is only about 30' away.


Getting There 

Drive up Cedar Canyon, you'll see it on the left in about 2 minutes. It's right across from a foot bridge. It's right off the road.

This is a thin crack line that shares the same start as 300 and Velvet Jones. This is a great clean aid route to hone skills for Zion. It is also a good rope solo route. The rock is soft but will hold thin gear. I took a daisy whipper onto a #0 metolius on this and it held. Climb past a bolt ladder to a small roof. Aid up the thin crack to a ledge with an anchor. Calder Stratford was working on freeing this. He said he thinks its 5.11....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
