Description 

Chuckawalla Wall is a sunny crag, facing S/SW into the sun for most of the day int he winter. The climbing is relatively nice, but is all sport and lacks much variety. While this crag offers a few nice days of climbing, it is not a destination.

The red sandstone here is an attractive formation, being mostly good, and while gentle on the hands, also a little slick in spots from the polishing of many hands. The climbing is on pockets, slopers, and crimps most of the time.

Here's an oblique, aerial view of the crag.

All of the routes are bolted and none require more than 10 clips. Each has a relatively good top anchor to rap or lower from. With the popularity of this wall, please rap to avoid destroying the shuts and chains over time. If TR'ing, please use your own biners or draws to avoid wearing the anchors as well.

The area is reached via a 2 minute hike from a nice parking area with nice clean potties and trashcans. The area is a free-use area and needs to be respected if we are to remain welcome here. Please pick up trash and stay on trails.


Getting There 

From Saint George, go N. on Bluff Street ~ 1 mile past Sunset BLVD, where a pull-out and parking area will be obvious on the left side of the road. Just down the hill to the West you can see Chuckawalla Wall and a few miles in is Turtle Wall. Walk the obvious path to the crag (2 min)

Second Coming 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ E5 6a  UT : Saint George : Chuckawalla Wall
According to the Goss Guide this is one of two 3-star climbs at Chuckawalla Wall, and, according to a Nov '03 Climbing magazine article, this climb is supposedly the 'premiere route on the wall.' These are at best a measured compliment and at worst a back-handed insult to the remaining climbs in the area. While it is a *good* route, there is nothing classic about it. Then again, this wall is a summer morning or winter afternoon playground, not a roadtrip destination.A slightly powerful ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

The trail is well marked and the main rd even has a sign for the area that you can't miss. The wall is 30 seconds from the parking lot and 8 minutes from town. We really enjoed this wall for a day of climbing. No need to spend more than 2 days at this wall. Also, the turle wall is a 10 minute walk down the main trail.

The kind of crag everyone wishes was just outside of there town for quick pump sessions
