Located in a National Forest Fee Area MORE INFO >>>


The Grey Cliffs Picnic Area is on the north side of the road just up canyon from the entrance to the Little Mill Campground (which contains Division Wall, among others).

There is a large parking lot that has room for eight or so cars, a bulletin board, and a bathroom.

Getting There 

Drive up the canyon past the Timpanogos Cave National Monument, watching for the entrance to the Little Mill Campground on your right.

Shortly after passing the campground entrance a sign on the left announces the picnic area. Don't pull in at the first, small parking area for one or two cars; wait for the larger lot, shown here.

Climbing Season

For the American Fork Canyon area.

Weather station 2.3 miles from here

Too Young To Be Human 5.12b 7b 26 VIII+ 26 E5 6b  UT : Wasatch Range : ... : The Grey Cliffs
I'm bored, and when I'm bored I find myself reminiscing about the good old days of climbing in AF. I loved the routes at the Grey Cliffs, and Too Young To Be Human is a perfect example why. Most of the holds on this route are good, but it is surprisingly pumpy. Start on the slab and climb up and right to a jug. From here, climb straight up the steep face with big moves between good pockets. It's classic. What more can I say?...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
