Beautiful Lake. Love Flaming Gorge


Flaming George has a lot of untouched climbing potential. Most routes that can be climbed are on the utah side on one of the peninsulas or going through the canyons. Horseshoe Canyon, and Sheep Creek have some epic lines that haven't been documented. The area is not crowded, typically sunny and with a variety of rock types to climb.

Getting There 

Coming from the west or east you take 1-80 to 530 south. Take this for about 1 1/2 hours to right before you enter the city of Manila. The Valley will be on the east side of the road. Most of the road to the marina gives some good 70' wall climbing potential. Most of it is sand stone in the valley so be careful. Since climbers haven't climbed the routes some of the rock can be loose. Your typical approach time is anywhere from 5-10 minutes depending on the route you desire.


Google Flaming Gorge!! Where ever you are coming from you'll be able to find it!

Extensive recon and research into the climbing history on this tower proved useless, as obscure drilled sandstone threaded anchors were discovered only after arriving on the top!!"Just saw your post on MP. That's a cool line you picked. The line we did was all free (~5.10R) and approached via the gully on the backside. I think 5 short pitches due to rope drag (lots of drag when the rope is slicing throug...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
