Beautiful Lake. Love Flaming Gorge

Description 

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.

Or

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

Please Don't Rain 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  UT : Flaming Gorge : Cedar Springs Overlook Wall
This climb has an awesome boulery start. The crux is the first 15' of the climb. The rest of the climb is a good 5.6 all the way to the top. Great cracks on the east wall above this climb to build a great anchor for the second. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
