Description 

Mill Creek Canyon is located between Parley's Canyon and Mt Olympus in the SLC area. It is one of the few canyons in the area that will allow dogs. There is an access fee of $2.25 per vehicle payable upon exit.

There are only a few crags that are worth climbing, all are limestone, and some can be sharp.

The area is mostly frequented by hikers and bikers. There aren't usually many climbers around.

Getting There 

From I-215 on the east side, take the 3900 s exit and head east to wasatch blvd, then head north to 3800 s. Take a right here and drive east 1.3 mi. into Millcreek Canyon.

Me on top of Sensei Spire.  <br /> <br />I tied off to the anchors with a clove hitch while my belayer took me off and ran over to the Stitches Wall for the pic.

This vertical route offers fun moves, cool holds, and a small summit. The rock is sharp and of so-so quality. It's a good one to climb if desert towers call to you but you're stuck in the city.The route gets morning shade....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

There is a pic of Tommy Caldwell in the latest Climbing mag climbing something in Mill Creek. Anyone know where that is?

I didnt think there was another Mill Creek.
That wall he was on is pretty original. I would have thought someone would recognize the vertical stripes.
