Description 

The routes of Mormon Canyon are back country adventure routes of a serious nature. Approaches are 1 to 1.5 hours but are well worth the sweat.

Getting There 

Turn off of highway 89A onto Jordan Road. At the "T" junction turn left and drive past the Adobe style homes following Forest Access signs and onto the dirt road. The parking area at the end of this road has been recently renovated and the old shooting range is gone. Park, drop into the drainage on the right and turn left. Mormon Canyon is accessed by hiking up this wash.

This is an amazing route if you like hand cracks and face climbing. Mostly well protected, with just the right amount of spice. It gets all day shade so is a good warm weather choice.Pitch 1) 5.11 140' Climb fingers in a straight in corner. Switch cracks to a hand crack thru a roof.
