Description 

Credit given to Kevin Chase's Wall Street guide book.

The time I went, it was like entering a whole different ecosystem from the more normal desert of the area. The cliff walls start small, but as you enter, the foliage begins to disappear and the walls get enormous. It's very quiet, colorful, and extremely beautiful. Wanting to get away from the crowds on Wall Street without going all the way to Canyonlands? This is a great place. Looking back into the canyon you can see Bootleg tower. Behind that and up the canyon is Christine's way Buff Saab - haven't climbed it yet, but it's supposed to be one of the premier 5.9 cracks in the area.

Getting There 

Day Canyon is 13 miles down Potash Road on the right. The canyon is visible only for a moment when driving. Park on the river side of the road, cross the road, leap the RR tracks, hop over, through, or around a cow gate and follow the trail.

Kiss of the Spider Women 5.12 7b+ 27 VIII+ 26 E6 6b  UT : Moab Area : ... : Day Canyon Cragging Routes
A deceptively long right facing corner and roof guarded by some looseness. The meat of the route is an inventive undercling and stem out a roof after surviving a pumpy off-fingers layback section on slippery rock. Like layaway plan at the creek, this one makes you go for it......[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
