Description 

The climbing in the area is much like Zion rock. It is part of the vermillion cliffs(AZ)/Cannan Wilderness(UT). The local people are mostly harmless and nice, however, crazy looks and the feeling of being out of place is common.

Getting There 

Located 45 miles east of St. George or 32 miles west of Fredonia.
