Emigration Canyon Rock Climbing
Emigration Canyon is a nice, yet small, subset canyon of Salt Lake City. Running east/northeast - west, Emigration Canyon climbs out of the valley from the University of Utah and ends on HW 65 at the Little Dell Resevoir
of East Canyon.
Mostly on private property the climbing etiquette is that of a quiet one. Don't be heard, try not to be seen. There are a small handful of areas found in Emigration Canyon, be weary, be wise, be careful and just go have fun.
If you find yourself in the neighborhood, do some chossyoneering!! then when your done check out Ruth's Diner
or grab a drink at the Sun and Moon Cafe
Who knew choss could be such a destination?!?
If coming from the north, south, or west, get to Foothill Drive and take it to Sunnyside Avenue and the Hogle Zoo
, continue east into Emigration Canyon. See individual areas for crag directions.

The rock is probably similar to the rock at Parleys, but filthy dirty! This seemed dirtier than the Fisher Towers and maybe even looser. DAW is east facing right of an obvious corner. Consider a rabies vaccine before visiting this aid/free crack climb....yes, I bolted right next to a crack. If one invests a few months into sanitizing this wall, which I dubbed the WAR WALL (or perhaps antiwar wall?)incidentally,....it might even go free. But if you feel war brings liberation, you will do war wit...[more] Browse More Classics in UT

thanks for setting up an "Emigration Canyon" area. Cool for downtowners that there are enough routes to warrant it.

i think emigration canyon is great.
i think the rock up there is crap.
i think climbing is fun regardless of quality, location, or whatever.
i think you could have a great day bouncing from area to area here.
i think i think too much.
