The Chadbourne Crag is a series of steep, pocketed limestone caves in upper Neff's Canyon. Developed in 1996 by Chad Zurinshas et al, the crag contains a couple dozen routes ranging from 5.10a to 5.13c. It's known for two things: the arduous approach and suspect rock quality, both of which are pretty much true. It's about an hour's hike from the parking lot, and while some routes consist of stone rivaling the best of American Fork Canyon, others are choss-fests resembling the worst of Hellgate. A few gems have emerged in the pocketed caves, though, most in the mid-5.12 range.
First, make your way to the Neff's Canyon parking lot:

A vertical to slightly overhanging route third from the bottom of the wall. Climb slabby stone to two bolts then up a vertical flake system to a small ledge. Have a rest, clip the last bolt and fire the roof to clip the chains. Quite good for the wall, and a good warm-up for the steeper routes uphill....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
