Description 

(AKA: Three Finger Canyon) This canyon has the biggest concentration of routes in the Reef area. With long multi-pitch to some excellent one pitch climbs, you can be sure to find something to suit your taste. Most of the routes face south and west.


Getting There 

The best approach is from the Hanksville road (Rt 24) as the dirt road from that side is usually in good shape.
Take the Rt 24 Hanksville exit off I.70 and drive 7 miles to just past mile marker 153 thats on the left side of the road. The dirt road is on the right and starts very straight then curves right(north). Carry on the dirt road for 4 miles to the small BLM post on the left..this is the 2 mile road (high clearance)to Three Finger Canyon. There is now a narrow rocky section crossing a wash ..best with 4-wheel.
