Kelly's Rock borders a dry wash and consists of solid, rough limestone. It faces roughly north.
From the Woodbury Road turnoff drive 3.7 miles (3.2 according to Goss). Shortly after crossing the fourth cattle guard the parking for Black and Tan and Kelly's Rock is on the right. Walk back to the wash and turn right up the wash (or find a cairn-marked trail that cuts the corner to the wash). From the parking area to the base of the wall is approximately .2 miles (as measured using Google Earth).

K-8 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- E3 5c UT : Saint George : ... : Kelly's Rock
This route is named "k-8" because it originally was the eighth route from the left side. Now it about the 11th or 12th, so things have changed a little. Anyway, Todd Goss calls this "one of the best routes in Utah". Wow... strong statement! However, I am hard pressed to argue with him - I can't think of another one at the 11b grade that is as good as this. Great pockets and edges through a couple of roofs, everything but the kitchen sink on this line. ...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
