Description 

Popular for camping, fishing, and hunting, Diamond Fork Canyon has some rock and a little winter ice climbing as well. Besides abundant wildlife, watch for range cattle and the occasional harmless “Blow Snake”. Keep an eye out for rattlesnakes as well.

Drinking water is available during the summer months at Diamond Campground (click here for reservations).

Getting There 

Drive south on I-15, take the Price/Manti exit 258, and follow US-6 into Spanish Fork Canyon. The turn for Diamond Fork Canyon is located at mile marker 184 on the east side of the road (5.5 miles from the mouth of SF Canyon). The Red Ledges area is seven (7) miles up Diamond Fork Canyon.

Diamond Fork Arch 5.10 6b 20 VII- 19 E2 5b  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : Red Ledges
(AKA: Diamond Fork Arch) Grit sandstone, a bit loose. Its in need of some climbing love, going for the last bolt would be the crux. Its a gnarly climb and its way out of the Wasatch Range ordinary. Your in for a treat climbing next to the Diamond Fork Arch!...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

If you want a good place to bring the whole family for the day and still get your climbing fix in, this is a good place. There are trails to hike, fishing in the river visible from the routes, or rappelling from 30 to 100 feet. Surprisingly not a very busy place. Also shady belay spots.
