Description 

This northwest-facing canyon wall is in the shade the majority of the day, getting sun only in the afternoon. The harder routes (5.12 to 5.13) at Black Rocks are found on this side, although the majority of the lines are in the 5.10 range.

Getting There 

Follow the trail from the parking area. Upon descending into the canyon do not cross to the other side of the canyon.

Slap Happy Topo Photo

Slap Happy 5.12c 7b+ 27 IX- 27 E6 6b  UT : Saint George : ... : Shady Side
Start by laybacking to reach out left to reach the beginning of the arete. Crux is pulling up into the arete from a heel hook and trying to get a stance to clip the 2nd bolt. The climb eases up considerably once you pass the 2nd bolt. Nice bouldery moves at the begining. This route is easily top roped by climbing Flirting with the Mutants, 5.11b to the right. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
