Getting There 

just past the Timpanogos Cave Flag pole on the left hand side of the road. Big almost perfectly square rock, you cannot miss it if your looking to your left. Small 4 car dirt parking lot right to the west of it


Great big sqaure boulder with climbs ranging from V3 to V10's. Very Shady. Parking can be extremely difficult to find during summer weekends

Considering the recent graffiti clean up efforts by the SLCA and the push for climbers to be responsible users of climbing areas with this weeks launch of 'The Pact', we are disappointed to see this vandalism of The House Boulder in American Fork.
Join The Pact - remove all chalk and tick marks and by all means please don't vandalize the rock.
