Description 

A more random and obscure part of Ibex, the South Corridor has a small variety of crags within a 10 to 20 minute approach. Like most of the areas, traditional and sport lines exist in the corridor. A 60 meter rope will suffice along with a single set of cams, and 8 to 10 draws.

Protected by the wind and fairly exposed, you can find solace on cold bitter days. Crags here include the Scorpion Slab, Holey Moley, the Birth Canal and New Year's Rock.

Getting There 

This cluster of random crags are located between the Corral Crags and Snakeskin Buttress.

Rock Climbing Photo: Chimneying past the first bolt

Aguamelon 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  UT : Ibex : ... : Amphitheater Rocks
Chimney up past 4 bolts. Once the gap flares open, stem wide above a slabby bolt and clip the bolt high on the right face. Commit to the right face completely and traverse right through a hidden sequence to a big sandy hueco. Pull final thin moves straight up to the anchors. Airy for the grade!...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
